I had a bird house that wasps covered inside and out. It was really beautiful, but alas, something came along (I suspect Stellar Jays) and tore it apart. I collected all of the big sheets of wasp paper and now am trying to find something to do with it. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to glue/fasten it down to either paper or fabric? If glue, what type of glue do you think wouldn't ruin the paper? Thanks so much for your ideas!!

That photo is awesome!

As far as glue I would think some scrapbooking glue, you know like archival quality, would work the best. Totally do a test piece first. I wouldn't suggest the normal go-to's like E6000, craft goop or hot glue. I think they would be too heavy for the wasp paper for lack of a better word.

Are you planning on tyring to put it in a shadowbox or something? If so maybe just using some pins, like how people mount insect collections.

Thanks for the ideas. The scrapbooking glue sounds like the best idea. I don't have the whole nest as something tore it apart. I just have largish sheets of the paper from the sides. I'm hoping to come up with a collage idea for it, so will probably glue it. I might try stitching some of it, though.
