You can see a little alligator clip holding onto the paper. You can use that or use the All Purpose Mat from Close To My Heart. This is great to work on. Ink and glue won't stick and it it heat resistant. If you have a small piece, the heat gun can blow it off.
I am trying to make cards for a vendor fair. When you have "bling" that is more than 1/4 " thick on a card and send it through the mail, it will be torn to sherds if you don't put extra postage on it. You also have to pay more if it weighs more than 1 oz. I am trying for great "thin" look. Happy card making.
