Buttons on photos?

I want to put some mini buttons in a circle on a photo (real, not digital) and I'm wondering what the best way to do that is? Obviously I can't glue them down. What can I do to not ruin the photo but still get the effect I want? Do I have to thread them right through the photo?

What do I do???

I might use "zot". Those clear sticky things. I don't know if they would ruin the pic or not though. I would like to hear what others have to say!

I've used zots(sticky dots) on mine. They are acid free and if you don't plan on taking them off it should be fine.

I think you can buy removable adhesive. It sticks, but then it peels off when you want to remove it. I can't remember the name of it.....

Thanks ladies!! I have something like those that I can try. They don't even have to be removable, I just don't want the photo to change colors later or anything like that.

What ever adhesive you use should not turn your photos as long as it is acid free.
