I use the Therm O Web Zips every time a scrapbook. They are definitely a must. I use them to adhere ribbon, flowers, buttons, metal, rhinestones, and anything else that can be a little tricky. I just cut the strips to fit what I am working with. There are also two lines of strips to work with at 24 feet each. The glue line is also thinner so as to not make things bulky when you put them in scrapbook.
I can't work without Therm O Web zips. I use them for almost everything... ribbons, lace, etc. But they also work great for attaching those tiny string beads to pages. They're easy to cut to the length you need and a box goes a long way. I highly recommend them to any paper crafter.
