Hanging Treat Box
The best part about getting a gift is the presentation. When giving a bottle, why just bag it when you can dress it up? Add little extras to any bottle (like chocolates to wine or drink mixes to water) with instructions from new tutorial writer Christina Fischer.

    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: TBGramma asked: "Can you stamp on leather? If so, what ink would you use?"
    A: "Try either StazOn™, acrylic paints, or even Ranger's Archival Ink™ on leather. It may need to be heat-set, so be sure to check the ink directions."

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kat has a suggestion for the Bleached out Images tutorial: "The new Clorox® bleach pens work great for this project. I destroyed a paint brush doing this one of the first times. Also using the bleach pen apply it directly to the stamp and stamp directly on dark cardstock. Just make sure to clean your stamp immediately."
