      thks for replying

      they are not doll pegs they are your standard approx 7 cm wooden pine pegs..I have made some peg cards today and just glued pegs together with a design on and sent them through the post to my mum to see if they arrive all in one piece and what they look like. Im off to Hobbycraft tomorrow to see what they have to hold pegs on cards
      Im trying to be a bit adventourious and get away from using greeting card/paper to send favour messages to people..dont know if it will work....Had a go today at a charity stall at my daughters school and they did not shift although a lot of interest..dont know..maybe thinking too much out of the box...Ill send photos of what Ihave done and really could do with constructive criticisim. Thks Auntie Peg

        I'd love to see pictures of these, they sound really interesting, but I can't quite picture what you're doing with them. Do you mean you clip a message, quote, proverb etc., with it and then put them on the front of a card?

            If you ARe sticking them onto the front of cards then maybe some clear silicone or a giant glue dot would do the trick? Or a large foam pad, like the ones you get with a badge on a card?

              this where I am mad but they do look great!!

              I strip the peg into two by taking the sping out..then I paint it with acrylic paint..glitter. decortate and then glue it with super glue onto the card..now the peg can either be designed into a tree trunk and then the rest of the card will be decorated, or they are made into a frame... Or has anyone seen peg dolls painted,.. thats what I do with them as well ..Ill put some designs I have made on paper or card onto my album..please helpful constructive criticism is needed. I took them down to baby group and the mothers loved them ... I have been sending them to friends and other and they have arrived no problem but have cost 50p plus to send.....thks for replying will still keep playing with the idea.
