Product Question (regarding idea in the 50th bday thread)

Okay, so MommyCB recommended the accordian circle (I love that idea, btw). I wanted to know what is a good product for getting the little tabs between the circles to stick. I usually use double sided tape for the photos, but I have a feeling that won't work on this.

Any ideas?

I LOVE using glue sticks, maybe that's just the preschool teacher in me Wink I use the scotch brand permanent type. Its safe for paper and the such. Another idea is the sticky dots that you can find in several different places. I dont use them so I dont know the brand, but have seen them and MIL uses them when she SB's

I used glue sticks on all of them. They are inexpensive (I paid $1 for two acid free glue sticks at the dollar store) and work marvelously. Regular Elmer's Glue might leave bubbles in the papers. I did 12 of them and it only took about 2 hours total to cut, paste and align everything. I want to do another 12, then complete the insides of them. The colors are really off on the photograph, because it looks like I used black paper, but I really used brown on the front. If you have any scraps, this works perfectly.
