TO JOHN JOHN BROWN:
Hello! Glad you you are going to make a crankie. Unfortunately, I don’t know of anyone making crankie boxes for sale right now. If you are on Facebook, you could join the Crankies in the Puppet World and Beyond Group which has 2,000 members now! You could post a message to that group and I bet you will get some responses. Sorry that I can’t be of more help.

Hello and thank you for the extra message. The answer is YES! And thank you. I am still recovering from my 2nd COVID vaccination which totally knocked me out. However, I am bouncing back a bit more every day. I will send an email reply today.

TO SANDI HOWELL:

Regarding glue, you want a glue that remains flexible over time. A glue that does not mind being rolled up tight and then unrolled a year later.

I have used Aqua glue for the past five years. It is slow drying so that you can reposition things which is nice. However I ran out of that months ago and so now I am using Elmer's School glue from the drug store and so far so good.

Stay away from any glue that might dry very hard and then crack. Stay away from glue labeled extra strong, super duper, etc. Stay away from wood glue that dries hard as a rock! :-)

Good luck!

HELLO SANDI HOWELL!
Glad you liked the Kitchen Crankies workshop, I had so much fun putting that together.

For the black silhouettes, you could use plain old black construction paper, that works just great. The thinner the better. I used black Tyvek because I have a huge role, enough to last a lifetime!

I am going to talk about glue in the next box because these boxes don't hold a lot of text.

Hello Sue from Winnipeg! I greatly enjoyed your 8 examples webinar and have watched it twice. I am wondering for the crankies which use cutouts and black silhouettes, what paper do they use and what glue do you use?

I purchased a ticket but it doesn't appear to include a passwod. I have not received a link or other information about the mini crankie festival.
