Q: What can I do with Washi Tape?
A: There are many things that can be done with it including adding stripes or other design to a card, using it for a border or even use it as a background. It’s fun to play with it and create your own uses for it, too!
Q: I need something to remove the adhesive from my project after I put it through my Xyron machine. Is there anything I can use to make this job easy?
A: An adhesive eraser is made just for that. You use it just like a regular eraser, but when the edges will no longer work, you just cut that area off and it’s ready to use again.
Q: I have a stamp on a wood block that is lose. Is there any way to fasten it down again?
A: You can use rubber cement on the back of the stamp to attach it back to the block. It will not harm the stamp.
Q: Do I need a specific sewing machine to sew on a card or layout?
A: No, any sewing machine you choose will work. Remember, though, if you also want to sew with it you will need to change the needle. Paper can quickly dull a needle so be sure to have an extra on hand.
Q: I want to add a message on my card, but I don’t want to stamp it and am not sure what else I can use. Is there anything?
A: There are many choices that you can use such as stickers, punches, stencils and rub-ons. Also, remember that many patterned paper kits include letter stickers, as well as, patterned paper that letters and words can be cut from.
