    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kate asked: "I have seen the board with pegs that you use for making bows. Where did you get that? Who makes it?"
    A: I know of two different products out there that have pegs for making bows. There might be more products like them out there, but these are the two I know of.

    - We reviewed one a few years ago. It's the The Ultimate Crafter’s Companion. Besides the bow maker it is also a scoring and dry embossing tool.

    - There also is the The Peg Bow Maker from Becca Feeken.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    BearHarmony has a suggestion for the Smackin' Acetate tutorial :" I embossed a stamp than laid the watercolour on top... I also sprayed over top with homemade glimmer mist to dress it up and add sparkle."
