    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Katie asks: "Do you repurpose the cellophane envelopes that hold stamps and other craft materials?"
    A: I have reused packaging for shaker windows, and I've used the envelopes to keep pieces of a project together. Most often I use the plastic as a palette for paint or ink. I use another material for this, but you could also use the envelopes for test prints in your stamp positioner. Check THIS THREAD for more ideas!
