Tea Bag Folding

Paper folding has enjoyed a popularity surge as you can see on Pinterest. Origami is well known and TBF is an off-shoot. The characteristics are simple origami folds, usually eight, folded the same and interlocked together, forming a rosette that lays flat for card embellishment applications.

Tea bag folding is like walking on the beach and looking for the unique shell to save. Each folding project is new and curious. Expand your creativity and see how you will use your embellishments and paper rosettes.
