How do you do the apply the body mod?

I noticed the really nice body mods some of you guys have made and posted for us. It looks like some you cut out as 1 piece and fold together but hold together with what and how to the heil, all with tape?

Some of the bodies it looks like you cut out as 3 seperate pieces but same question if you have 3 pieces do you just use tape and how are you attaching them to the BR.

Thanks

I don't know what it's called but I have been using this stuff I found at a craft store for scrapbook making. It comes on a roll in this little dispenser and you just drag/roll it across your paper and it leaves a sticky film. Kind of like the adhesive tape without the tape! Its much neater than glue or paste, and much more controlable. For a realy strong bond, put a coat on both surfaces to be joined and press together. As for how to attach to the heilo, that depends on on the body. If there is a point of contact with the frame you can might be able to use 2 sided tape on the inside.

One more thing, to get a good crisp fold it helps to score the paper first. Be careful not to cut it, all you need to do is "dent" the paper to get a good fold. Try using something with a narrow, rounded, but dull point and a straight edge. I have some sculpting tools that are perfect but a dull knife or properly shaped stiff piece of plastic will also work. Remember the goal here is to make a crease, not a cut. It doesn't matter which side of the paper you score. I would do it on the printed side.
