  1. I needed to do a red design on a paper bag for my granddaughter to use for a gift . The only red I had was iron on. I remembered you saying in your demo that you could use iron on on paper, so I was able to complete the design on the bag for her. Thank you for you saying this statement. I would never have thought to do this.

  2. Thank you so much for posting the video here on your blog! This is a really fun card! I enjoyed watching you make it. I have made pop-up cards a couple of times but your technique makes it really easy!
