Copic Marker Hermit Crab Card

I've been so busy over at You Tube, I've forgotten to update my blog.  I'm really finding it easier to film a video than to explain how I made a certain card.  I will try to remember to update my blog each time I add ayou tube video.  I upoaded two today.  One is showing how to make a mini milk carton & the other is a TeePee card with Copic colored fish & hermit crabs.  Check out the TeePee video here:
I really lie making the TeePee card.  It came out looking much more complicate than it really is.  It is just 3 pieces of 6" x 6" paper scored in half.  Then you attach the three pieces so that the points are at the top of the card.  Hold it all together with a piece of velcro & you have a spectacular card.  It does take a bit more to decorate.  After all, you need to decorate three sides.  I realy think it was worth the extra time to decorate.  I have several views of this card so be sure to check them all out.  Thanks,  JIL
