Using Beadswax® to adhere seed beads to paper or objects gives a strong hold and beads will not pop off after time. 

If seed beads are adhered to a sealed surface, you can hard-coat the seed and bugle beads using PermaLac®NT  top coat or create a flexible coat with Kato Polyclay™ clear medium liquid. Other sealant options include Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ top coat sealant and Vitrium® Clear Protectant sealant.
