    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Serena asked: "I would like to know how to make holes in ribbon for things like brads without ripping or wrecking the ribbon? Thanks."
    A: Brush Fraycheck® or even just clear nail polish over the ribbon before you punch the hole. That should stop your ribbon from ripping.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Margaret has a suggestion for the Reflection Technique: "I use an acrylic block to stamp the transfer image onto. This makes for a more stable transfer. The Lovely as a Tree stamp set is wonderful to work with in this manner."
