I tried making a video tutorial yesterday, actually I spent at least 4 hours trying. Needless to say I couldn't complete it. It's more difficult than I thought. The problem is that our house is not quiet enough to film a video that's 10 minutes or less:
  • Phone rings, stop the camera
  • Door bell rings, dog barks, stop the camera
  • Son asks" Are you done yet Mom?", stop the camera
  • Husband asks,"What are you doing? Oh, your filming...sorry!" stop the camera
  • Husband goes outside. Goes by window with leaf blower, stop the camera
  • Son brings friends inside to watch mom, stop the camera
  • Son & friends start playing PSP3. Machine gun & grenade noises in background, stop the camera
  • Finally, everybody is outside and the house is quite, start filming...battery on camera goes dead....I quit!

So, here's the typed instructions : )

  • One sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock

  1. Score at 3"
  2. Rotate 1/4 turn
  3. Score at 3" & 6"
