    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Elizabeth asked: "I am having problems figuring out what glue to use to adhere metal flat backed faux or swarovski jewels. Regular glue and runner don't seem to stick well. Once dry, they pop right off. Also, glitter and metallic-y papers seem to need something other than liquid glue. Any suggestions as to the best glues to do what with?"
    A: For the jewels I would probably use Glossy Accents, strong clear liquid adhesive from Ranger. For glitter paper and metallic paper I would use Scor-Tape. I LOVE that tape and use it for most everything.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Jean has a suggestion for the Star Fold Card tutorial: "I created a smaller one myself. Finished dimension is 2 3/4". Rectangle to start is 4" x 4 1/2" and score points are 2" and 2 5/8". "
