I bought a frame and a bird decoration thing, mainly because they were beautiful not because I thought I'd use them  Wink But the thing is they are made of transparency paper (the clear plastic stuff; not vellum.) How the heck do I adhere the things?? I am worried glue will show through.

you can see the bird I bought here:

thanks for the help!

I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

clear mounting tags, regular double-sided tape, or glue dots ought to adhere it pretty well.

Hi.  If you have a Hobby Lobby or Michaels near you, or maybe even a Walmart I think, you can buy a roll of glue tape stuff that is specifically for transparencies nowadays.  I haven't gotten around to buying some, but since I use transparencies all the time I intend to get some and try it out.  I also use mini Glue Dots on my transparencies if there is a dark area that I can hide the glue dot behind so it can't be seen.  Also some people use staples if they can be incorporated into the project/page.
