Intro: How to Make a Stunning Card With Tea Bag Folding
Tea bag folding is a great, fun, and easy way to make great cards and decorate pretty much anything else! It requires no special tools and is inexpensive, too. Plus, a homemade card is very special to someone.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need:
1. Piece of cardstock for the card
2. 16 tea bag folding tiles (1 page)

4. A glue stick
5. Markers, stickers, etc. to decorate with
Step 2: Fold the Card and the Kites
Fold the cardstock in half.
Then fold a tile in half. Open. Fold on corner along the crease. Repeat with other side to form a kite shape. Repeat with every tile.
Step 3: Glue the Tiles
Glue the first half of your first kite in the center of the card so that the side that is entirely made of the pattern is visible. Then, glue the second kite so that one side is lined up with the center crease of the one before it. Repeat until you have one kite left. Then, glue the last one underneath the flap (along the crease still) and glue the flap on top. Then, you will have a full ring.
Step 4: Decorate
Be creative! Use markers, stickers, die cuts, or anything else you have!
