what is the best glue for fibers?

I really like them.. but i'm finding it difficult incorprating them into my layouts...

I should try the stapler..  I have tied a few.. using a punch.. that worked really well... 

I have found ribbon really easy to glue.. but some of the smaller string is definitly hard to work with...

Try threading the fibers through eyelets or wrapped around brads.

1. If your book has a spiral binding, tie it around the spirals for a fun look and to jazz up that part of the book
2. Tie the fibers around decorated chipboards letters
3. Use the fiber as thread and stitch along the side of the page
4. Thread fiber through the holes of buttons
5. Use fiber as a stem for a flower
6. Ribbon glue and coloured staples can help you place the fiber anywhere on the page
7. Eyelets is another way to stitch up your pages

Fibers can be alot of fun and a use for it will come to you.

Thank you so much.
I was having trouble following the gist of the conversation.
Ignorance corrected.
