Two questions....

I cut some inchie bases from a catalog and while some of them are fine 'as-is' I'd like to add to some of them. The problem is that the paper is so glossy that even Sharpie permanent pen ink slides off. Any hints on how to un-glossy the paper without ruining it? There's got to be something besides just gluing stuff to the paper, right?

I have a bunch of greeting cards that I'd like to display, I thought I saw someplace about turning them into a book by binding them together with handsewing. Of course, FINDING that someplace again is not happening easily...anyone know if what I'm talking about makes sense & how do-able it is? 

Thanks much!!  Kiss

Re glossy paper--gently sand with a very fine grit sanding block.

I think this is the tutorial you were thinking of for binding greeting cards into a book:  Topic of the posting is Card Book, here's the link:
