Temporary Glue

I am trying to find a glue that can be removed from antique buttons later if I want to take them out of a display frame. They are fragile. There is a cloth backing inside the frame. I tried removable glue spots and they won't hold the heavier buttons. Some of the buttons are over 80 years old.

Have you tried sticky tac ? it's commonly used for posters and can hold quiet a bit of weight.

Aleene's No Sew Fabric Glue works very well.

Instead of gluing, why dont you just tac them to the cloth backing, just a few stitches should hold them fine, and it will easily remove.

I used my glue gun to glue antique buttons around a cheap clock. When the $2 clock died I easily popped the buttons off and re-glued them onto another $2 clock.

Evaporated canned milk is an excellent glue! My mom has used it for years!
