    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Joanne asks: "I just read about using hanging folders to separate colored card stock in filing cabinets. Every time I do that the card stock bends. What am I doing wrong?"
    A: It sounds like the problem might be too much weight in the folder. I store my cardstock this way, and the most I have is about an inch of thickness in each folder - if you have more than that, just divide the paper into more folders. You can also stabilize the folders with a sheet of medium-weight chipboard if needed.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Dina has a tip for the 3D Envelope Card tutorial: " I added my backing card in step 6, and it was much easier to stick down that way."
