I am a violin/viola teacher. I use the sticky paper that comes in between postage stamps because they are the right size. Or, the sticky ends of bumper stickers. You don't want bandaids because they slip out of place. Anyway, I can them fake frets.

The most important thing is to have them in the correct place. A violin teacher/good violinist should put them on for you because if they are in the wrong place, it will be out of tune and more importantly, you wil train your fingers to be in the wrong place. Try not to use them for more than 6-9 months. Train you finger muscles to know where to go as soon as possible. Hope this helps.
