Queen's Crown Award for Crafting Tips

Bilby has won the Queen's Crown award for accumulating 5 Crafting Tip awards!

Here are her winning tips:


Printing Pictures for Scrapbooking: As long as you print on acid free paper, you can tons of pics from the internet. I Google images when looking for something specific, print and cut out. You can also use pics from printable card programs, clip art...etc

Instead of buying expensive anti-static wiping cloths for a clean, fingerprint-free glossy photo, after carefully adhering your photo give a gentle wipe over with a clean dry make up removal pad; they come in a bag of 20 or 30 for a much cheaper price.

Don't have a light box? In a pinch you can try a clear pie or casserole dish upside down and putting a small turned on flashlight underneath. Small domed lights that run by batteries are great.

Have too many photos that can't be used for albums? Outline the letters of the place you visited on the back with a pencil and cut out with scissors, turn over, organize in order and you will have a nice title page.

To prevent tangled thread when sewing by hand, knot each strand separately instead of knotting them together.

Thanks for the great tips, Bilby!
