September's mid month tutorial

Hi there,
It's Nikki here again, welcome to another Ellephantastic mid month tutorial.
This time around I have decided to show you how to make a tee-pee card. These cards are great fun to make and look really good on the mantlepiece!

We would love to see what you make with them, so be sure to put a comment on this post so that we can pop over and see what you have made.

 Here is the finished card

 To make the base of this card you will need 3 6"x6" pieces of card that you have scored on the diagonal.
 Cut you 2 pieces of paper 20cm x 20cm - cut them down the diagonal - ink all edges and then fix into position.
 Use this picture as a guide as to how to fix the paper to your card.
 Now we start to fix the base card together - this is step one
 Step 2
 Cut another square of paper 51/2cm x 51/2cm - cut on the diagonal and ink the edges
 Fix these into position on your card as shown above.
 Now it's time to decorate your card front.
I used a little magnet at the side of my card to keep it shut, but you could use a button, ribbon, velcro dots etc.

I hope you liked this tutorial, I'm looking forward to seeing all of your teepees.....
Happy craftin'
