How to Create Folders

Add Notes







Step 2: Type your note into the screen that appears above. These notes could include alternative materials, colors you want to use, or anything else you can think of. When you're done, just click on "Save Note" in the bottom right corner.











Step 3: And that's it! Whenever you're logged into your account and viewing that craft, your note will appear near the top, just beneath the craft's title.
