What is the best way to attach the trinkets to your LO? I bought the Timmy chain with the closure on one end….but what's the best way to attach it to your LO?
Thanks Savages! I know that you will know the best way….(I've been drinking Pina Coladas, and I'm feeling a buzz….sorry for any misspelled words!)May 6, 2011 at 2:06 am #106613
YUM hehe. I just use hot glue if I want it to stick somewhere or an eyelet if I want it to hang. You could also use a brad, just reinforce the back of the brad with hot glue maybe? Sorry not the most inventive ideas lol.May 6, 2011 at 4:53 am #106614
Yummy! Pina Coladas rock! Back to the topic of discussion, I would use some hot glue too. HeheMay 6, 2011 at 1:22 pm #106615
Ok….hot glue is in! I'm a kit behind everyone…I'm finishing up my first Bella Volo today…..Day late…Dollar Short….That's me!May 6, 2011 at 2:38 pm #106616
I just put one on a Hanging collage this week. I put the jumpring onto the ribbon and then swaged it over a little and used a brad through the cahin. You can see it in my galery at sb.com Sorry I don't know how to do links. Crazy since I am the secretary in the technology department.May 6, 2011 at 2:39 pm #106617
I use Zip Dry for metal, and for all my other embellies! Works great!!May 6, 2011 at 3:08 pm #106618
I use crafter's pick-the ultimate-has worked well. I tend to get those stringy hot glue things all over.May 6, 2011 at 4:00 pm #106619
Stringy hot glue and all….I glued it down to the LO and put a little flower to anchor it. Those Timmy thingys aren't that great! They are very difficult to unhook, and the trinkets hang funny. I just used the chain. That worked just fine. Thanks for the tuts, Girlies!May 8, 2011 at 2:22 am #106621
FYI – I was wondering the same and saw Shona used some hot glue (she still had strings) on one of her LO's. I used it on a bella volo LO and now my stuff is coming off!! I don't know if my glue is old or what but just be cautious about the hot glue. It doesn't seem to be the best.
I use 2 part epoxy for my metals. It's kinda sticky and makes you high using it in a small area but it'll attach anything.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."May 8, 2011 at 4:36 am #106620
Beacon 527, Goop, and Glossy Accents are my go tos for tough to adhere itemsMay 8, 2011 at 11:15 am #106622
I use Art Glitter Designer glue…you only need a little and it really holds..dries fast….If I hang something up on the wall…the items stay…where some of my hot glue stuff falls off after a while. You can get a special tip for it so a tiny amount comes out..and it it great with glitter ….Art glitter…any glitter.May 8, 2011 at 3:18 pm #106623
