    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Lori want to know: "What's your favorite size of square card?"
    A: I think the most practical sizes for square cards are 4 1/4" and 5" if using an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock... you can easily get two 4 1/4" card bases from one sheet, cutting across. The off-cut for a 5" base leaves you with a nice mini-slimline base, 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Melissa has ideas for the 3D Pumpkin Place Card tutorial: "These are super easy to make and so much fun! Even kids can make them! (Just be careful with the hot glue gun.) I hope you all give it a try! They can even be made with non-traditional colors too...vintage ephemera paper, white cardstock, or even in pastel colors!"
