    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Mary Ann wants to know: "I made a double folded card and would like to find a sticky glue to hold flap but still be able to open card."
    A: Removable glue dots would be one option for a temporary closure. There are also some glues that are permanent when applied wet but can also be left to dry for a few minutes and they'll remain tacky for a repositionable hold. Zig Two-Way Glue and Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue are two brands I have used. If you didn't want to add extra glue to the card, you could use one of those options on a paper strip that wraps around the card.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials

    has a tip for Shaker Cards: "I always rub the inside edge of any shaker card I make with my anti-static pouch (the kind that is made to be used with embossing powder). I think those pouches are basically just corn starch and baby/talcum powder, so you may already have what you need. Dip a q-tip in some baby powder and rub it along any glued edge that your sequins will touch. FYI, I usually use foam tape to make my shakers, so it's the edge of the foam that I'm rubbing with powder."
