I just wanted to thank everyone who gave me such wonderful advice on how I should mount the paper cut art. Advice I must admit I did not take!

The biggest challenge with these pieces was that the cuts were so intricate, there wern't many places large enough to stick anything too!

Well being a craft store we decided to use a cool product used in scrap booking and sold in our store. We used adhesive dots! Well they are acid free, not conservation by anymeans... The joy of these things is they are very small double backed adhesive "dots" We still had to cut them smaller but they worked great! They absolutly did not show through the paper!

Sorry I didn't get pictures!
Anyway thanks again everyone!

Elsa, I don't want to be an alarmist, but . . .

Some adhesives will look great for an hour, a day, a week, a month and then begin to show through from the front, looking like a little grease spot.

I know this from personal experience. That's why I'm such an alarmist.

BUT . . .

If the dots are made for scrapbooking (gee, I miss Kit) then you'd expect they will be just fine.
