3 Column Display It's easy!

I am often asked how to set up a three column display like I have here at my blog. It's easy, but you do need to change some code. I hope this is helpful to my fellow handcrafters.

I followed these directions for making a
Three column display. The article says in part, Three column templates are in high demand among most of the bloggers. This is evident from the frequency in which that question gets asked in the blogger forums. I have written up a series of articles that explains the under the hood details of converting a 2 column template in to a 3 column one.

Good luck!

24 oz tooling leather has been hand dyed black and sealed then hand stitched into this beautiful coin holder.

To use simply place coins into the bowl of the coin holder and pucker the holder and allow coins to slide into the pocket. Close the bowl over the pocket to hold your coins securely. To retrieve your coins open the bowl and pucker the pocket to allow the coins into the bowl and choose what coins you need.
