Tutorial Tuesday - Tee Pee Card

If you are like me one of your resolutions for the New Year is to craft more often.  Well here is your chance to get started with that resolution.

It's time for Tutorial Tuesday!

Today I am going to show you how to make a Tee Pee card.  It will Wow all of your friends.  It sure did mine.  As my students would say it is "Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!"
Supplies needed: 3 squares of card stock for base (your choice of color and size), 3 squares of designer paper 1/2 inch smaller in size, adhesive, bone folder, closure (such as ribbon or velcro), image of choice and embellishments as desired

Step 1: Cut three squares of same size and color of card stock for base of card.  I chose 5 x 5 for my square.  You many use any size square.  The bigger the square the bigger the card.  

Step 2:  Fold each square on the diagonal and crease with bone folder. 

Step 3:  Assemble 3 folded squares with adhesive.

Step 4:  Add a closure such as velcro or use ribbon.  I found that velcro is the easiest to work with for this card.

Step 5:  Cut your designer paper squares in half on the diagonal and adhere to 3 sides.  Do not adhere one to the side with the closure.  You may add as many layers of paper as you would like.

Step 6:  Use the three remaining pieces of designer paper to add to the 3 ends that were not covered. 

Step 7:  Add desired image and embellishments to complete your card.
I hope you enjoyed our tutorial today.  Make sure to stop by and show us your wonderful creations.  There is still time to enter our current challenge.
