...Anybody know? I seem to be glueing them on and they just curl right off! Sticky tape looks tacky when I do it... Help!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

I'd check on this with the folks in the 'bath & beauty' section if you don't get an answer here. I figure if someone can get a label to stick to a lip balm tube or perfume bottle...then they'd be able to help.   Wink

I asked my partner..... he automatically said - just print it out on sticky paper and cut it out!!! D'OH! That is so clever. lol. Then I can coat it with resin or glue............... so smart :-)

I'm assuming you're wanting to put paper labels onto say little tiny glass bottle charms?

Apart from printing out the labels on say sticker paper - I'd also use straight up crazy glue on the labels. then once they are affixed do a heavy coat of triple thick gloss. Just using the label on the bottle (especially if its a round bottle) will eventually not stick, especially if its a super small label (I found that out the hard way! >__<) Doing the three things I mentioned helps keep the label on there permanently and also keeps it from getting soggy : )

Oh shoot - didn't notice that.. XD
Well, Krazy Glue (a brand name kind in the States put out by Elmer's) is just a super quick drying permanent type of glue.. if it helps it says: Cyanoacrylate Glue in the details... XD    Maybe another word for it is hobby glue or all purpose high strength glue. It sets within seconds and it's a very strong bond (especially if you accidentally glue your fingers together... XD)
