My New Channel + Easy to Make Die-Cut Pillow Box with Paper Flower

Hey, folks!

Long time no see!  I've missed posting on my blog, so I'm glad to be back!

I signed up for a YouTube account in the spring.  That there is the 'channel art' I created. :o)  I made the "E" out of Perler beads...I had to use tweezers to put them in place because my fingers were too fumbly!  I couldn't figure out what to use for the "a" and finally decided to make one out of a roll of washi tape. :D

In May, I made a video of how I decorated my mom's Mother's Day gift, but things went horribly wrong when I uploaded it -- there was a lot of lagging, and the audio wasn't in sync anymore, so I was talking about one thing while showing another.  That doesn't work so well with craft tutorials!  I don't know enough about video editing to fix what happened, so I had to give up on that video.  I wasn't sure if the quality setting I used while recording was part of the problem, so I tried recording at a different setting for the video in this post.

Today's project is a simplified version of what I made for my mom...

Here's my video if you'd like to see how this came together!
