My resource pack doesn't work

So I spent a lot of time working on my resource pack dedicated to my YT channel. After taking a break and deciding I wanna check and make sure everything is working properly I went ahead and compressed it to a zipped folder. Then I put it in my resource packs, started up Minecraft and my resource pack wasn’t there to be used, I tried doing many different things afterwards. When I tried to open the resource pack it said “Invalid folder.” I don’t know what’s going on but please help me. I put a lot of work in this texture pack and I don’t want it to have gone to waste. Add me on Skype if necessary, lyricbreaker373. Thanks!

Are you still able to preview and edit the textures inside novaskin editor?

i have the same problem, and i can edit them
