I punched a hole near the top of my laminated lables and then threaded a string through the little hole at the top of the trofast box. Before that I tried sticky back plastic, sellotape, clear packing tape and double sided tape, none of which worked.
I've discovered in the last few days that glue-dots work. These (http://www.gluedots.com/display/router.aspx?DocID=753) are the ones I used. Not sure where to get them from though as I was given them by an ex-crafter when she had a clear out.

I use velcro too. It is a product by Sellotape called Hook and Loop tapes, and is little sticky squares - one side on box, other side on back of label and press firmly. Works a treat and not had to replace any yet despite the repetative ripping off of labels that one little lovely likes to do.:laughing:
