    Q: Sara asked: "I absolutely can't tie a great bow. I am always working with the loops to make them lay straight and end up making a big mess. Please show me how to make a good bow for my cards. I can make the stay-put bow but not a pretty regular bow to lay across my card. Thank you soooo much."
    A: There was a great thread with links to tutorials on how to tie a bow in the forum. Check here.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Dana has a hint for the Texture with Alcohol Marker Technique: "It just occurred to me: I don't have alcohol ink, but I DO own bleach!!! I think the same could be accomplished by dipping a small paint brush, or anything "pointy" into bleach and dotting it, and using bleach on the rag and tapping it."
