What size tippet - 8X or 7X?
Any suggestions on how to attach it to line?

8X tippet can get REALLY light so check the breaking strength.
A nail knot is a pretty standard way to attach fly line to leader butt.

You still wNt a decent leader to turn it over. I would plan at least a 7ft leader that tapers to 5x connected to the fly line via nail knot. Then you can attatch the tipper with your choice of knot.
