How to Make a Kimono Card

These kimono cards are so much fun to make. I got the idea from an old issue of The Rubber Stamper magazine (Sept. 2005.) Of course, I had to add my own touches like the bunny slippers and the geisha girl. They are simple to make once you have the instructions. Below is a video tutorial I put together to show you how.

I love the Komono Cards, BUT I can't figure out how to get videos to play on my computer at work?!?!?! So I can't see the directions. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

To Elsie:

I'm somewhat technology challenged. (Maybe that's why I like playing with paper so much.) I know some of my friends that have a dial up connection sometimes have problems viewing videos due to the slower connection.

I use youtube.com to host most of my videos. You could try going to their site to watch them. Just type in mwedemeyer in the search box and a list of the videos I've posted should be listed.

For my videos that are over 10 minutes I use googlevideos.com. I think you should be able to find them if you type in my name in the search box.

Hope this helps.

First and foremost congratulations to these remarks, just as lucid and informative. However, 2 or 3 points would have deserved more development, especially in the conclusion. It's just a way to say I'm eager to discover the next post

Is Kimono Card is a traditional card or it is some history behind it?

Michelle, I love everything I have seen in your videos so far and I found you due to a swap I'm doing with Stampin Up Demonstrators. We are doing Fancy Fold Cards. I'm sorry someone has been using your wonderful videos to sell-makes a person not want to share. I am writing measurement instructions to go with your video to all of my swappers. They have to google you. I did find a place where I had to join to view your video-I could hear it but not see it. I knew from watching the video I could find it so glad you posted how to locate you. Thanks for being an angel and sharing.

Belle said...

It is kind of nice that something you spent so much time on in 2008 is still out there and working. Again, thanks Kerry
