    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Amy asks: "What would you use to preserve newspaper articles for an album?"
    A: My inclination would be to scan the articles at a high resolution on archival paper - that way you'd avoid any yellowing of the paper, and be sure that the memories are preserved.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Andrea has a tip for the 6x6 Treat Holder tutorial: "Another option for closing would be to punch 1 or 2 holes and tie ribbon through them. If you did just one hole (through both layers, of course), the bow would be at the top. Two holes--bow in the front. Thank you for sharing!"
