    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Linda asked: "I purchased some very nice cardstock from a garage sale only to find out that it has a musty smell when I got it home. Can you help me with a solution? "
    A: Try placing dryer sheets between your cardstock. They should absorb some of that smell.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Betty has a suggestion for the Fan Fold Flower Tutorial: "I didn`t have a scoreboard so I tried scoring each scallop with my papercutter scoring blade and it did O.K. I also tried using mono multi-purpose liquid glue for the adhesive and it worked great too! I just had to hold it for 30-60 seconds. I made some magnets for Christmas with wider paper strips and they turned out great too!"
