I've made a couple gumpaste records with edible images as the label. However, because of the size of the lettering, the edible image words aren't terribly clear. So, I'm using those on the cake, but making a separate batch of the gumpaste records as a keepsake for the lady. But on the ones that WON'T be on the cake, I just want to glue the labels (on regular printer paper- because the names of the songs are clear- and that is what she wants) onto the gumpaste records. I think I remember reading something about how elmer's glue won't dry and it will break down the GP- any suggestions on how to keep this attached? I need to finish it here soon- needs to be delivered in the morning. Thanks so much for any thoughts.

brush a little water on it, brush a little clear icing gel on it, or gum glue (Tylose & Water)
I would just dab sparingly, you wouldnt want the paper to wrinkle

Sorry, I have never done anything like that.
My thought would be to use royal icing or gumglue (very thinned down fondant)
