Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Lisa asked: " I wondered if you could tell me what is the best way of adhering designer paper to a Graphic 45 film canister that houses a chipboard album."
A: I don't know about the best way, but I have always used Scor-Tape or other strong double sided adhesive to adhere patterned paper to metal tins. If the canister is plastic, that would work as well. If you'd prefer to use a glue, you might try a gel medium or something specifically formulated to work on plastic.

We have a few tutorials that showcase covering tins with paper:

Feedback From Past Tutorials
Mary has a suggestion for the Clay Hanger tutorial: " I have wooden square dowels from another project that I will use for the 1/4" guide; great TIP for the OCD ! "
