  3. Debbie, thanks very much for this tutorial. I am going to make one for my Valentine this year! Now I only have to find the right supplies... do you have an online site you order from?

  4. Hi Victoria, I use a Martha Stewart bone folder you can pick up and most craft stores and Wal Mart, Michaels, check the craft section of you favorite store or you can order online almost anywhere. I use a 12x12 sheet of paper, printed only on one side. I don't order to much online when it comes to paper because I like to see it up close! I use a Cricut Expression for a lot of my paper cutting, but you can use stamps or just about anything! Thanks for checking this out, I would love to see what you do!!

  10. Thank you so much for doing this video: i think the card is so cute but i m not totally sure if i think it should be opened twice if you understand what i mean.
    When you do that it seems hard for the receiver to fold it all back then, it looks easier when its only opened once.
    I guess i m the first Norwegian to comment on your blog,lol: i have the same kind of blog but i need to add more crafting photos(i have photos of lots of different stuff,lol)

    If anyone wanna look and leave comments i would be thrilled cause so few are bothered to do so unfortenately.

    Anyway love your video, please make more and love your blog too!!!

    luv nina

  11. Dear Debbi,
    After all the buzz on Martha'a site about your video, I thought I would check. Whht a difference it made to see it in done, rather than just the still photos.
    Great idea! Thank you for sharing it!

  13. Debbie - Congratulations on such a clear, informative instructional video. I'm not a paper crafter - instead an obsessive cross stitcher and I stumbled upon your blog via the Martha Stewart site. You have certainly filled in the blanks on the official instructions. I might have a go at this for my hubby this year - it looks so easy NOW! Thank you!

  26. OK, so I sat there trying to follow Martha's directions,feeling more and more frustrated. Thought I would check the comments to see if someone could explain the folding better and WOW I found your video!!! And I LOVED IT!! You need to make more videos cuz you are good!! And, my victorian valentine is all folded...of course, truthfully, I will have to follow your video each time, but, hey, that's fine with me!!! Thanks so much!!! And Happy Valentine's day!!! Willow

  27. Thank you Debbie! I am a visual person and understand things much better by seeing it done. Great video. My family will love these valentines cards. I also think it would be neat to put a small piece of jewelry inside.
