Alot of the kit clubs are putting this in their monthly kit. Can you tell me what you do with it? I want to use if, but what are ways to attach it besides glue.

I admit that I sew them on with a small bead for the center. Good for making clusters in the middle of larger flowers.

I say "admit" because I am one of the ones that sew buttons on also. I guess I really like hand sewing and I do it while watching TV.

I second glue dots. I finally used some sequins last night and that is how I tacked them down perfect sizes for me.

I have a layout from back when sequins were popular in the scrapbooking world, about 6 years ago. It had a large monogram on it & I hand sewed individual sequins solid all over the letter. I don't know what I was thinking when I took all that time to do that, but it's one of my favorite layouts to go back & look at. The sequins look so cool.

I'm thinking about a photo mat covered solid or the diy thickers with small sequins.

I'll use either a glue dot or my tiny attacher.

I gotta get me one of those sewing machines....oh, and then I gotta get someone to teach me how to use it. LOL
