    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: greycatlady wants to know: "I need measurements for the mechanism to be used in a 5" x 7" Twisted Pop-Up Card."
    A: in a horizontal format (7" x 10" base) you can actually use the same measurements for the mechanism inserts that are listed in the photo tutorial. Keep the length of the 4-panel piece at 11", but you can adjust the width up to 5" if needed.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Prissequito has some ideas for the Treat Sliders tutorial: "Short, tall, wide, or narrow--what a terrific idea. I love this for Ghirardelli squares, tea bags, lemonade singles, and now--off to get the Latte packets. Fun, easy project."
