Camouflage Technique & Tent Box Video


Today I have a great masculine technique to share with you just in time for Father's Day - Camouflage!  I did a picture tutorial last year with this technique on a Fishing Vest Card and it proved quite popular so I thought I'd do a video showcasing it this time around on the cutest little tent!  It can be used as a gift card holder or a little treat holder and used for any guy occasion you can think of...endless possibilities!!  I wish I would have thought of this last year for my son's Campfire Birthday party - I think it would have been a hit!  And even though I'm calling it a masculine technique - don't let that stop you from creating for all the girl camo lover's out there - just switch the green shades I used to pink shades and your all set!  If you'd like to create your own little tent, I've designed a template that fits onto an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock.  The link for the template will be at the bottom of this post.


Stamp sets: Lovely as a Tree, Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Ink: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Early Espresso marker, white gel pen, Sticky Strip, toothpick

Hope you have fun making these little tents - I'm sure it will put a smile on the recipients face!

Until next time...

How adorable. I remember that vest well and in fact, I have it started on my shelf. Just need to finish colouring in the trees.

Melissa, you've done it again! The fishing vest I made for my husband's b-day was a hit. As an "old" but still active Girl Scout, this tent will make a cute favor for my Girl Scout sisters! Thanks!
