    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Marilyn asked: "What is the best 'glue' to use on die cut "words"....to place on cards?"
    A: There is really no best way. You can use liquid glue, or you can use a Xyron machine. Or if they are bigger you can cut dimensional adhesive into smaller pieces and use them to pop up your letters. I usually choose depending on the size of the letters.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Maria has a suggestion for the Lotion Nail File Gift box tutorial: "What a great teacher gift. Also a great idea for party favors is to substitute the lotion bottle with little bubbles bottles. "
