Teabag Folding for a Birthday

     This is my first attempt at 'teabag folding' on a card and it's time consuming but something I will no doubt try again since I really like the end result.

     There's nothing all that fancy about the actual folds - just strips of dp folded in half - but layering them properly to get the effect I wanted took some time since I was working without specific instructions.  I had a photo of a project someone else had done and I was working from that but working from the back when you're looking at a photo of the front... yeah, not the easiest thing.  lol

     I used a die cut, CS frame made by using two dies from a Spellbinders set and all the papers are layered onto it from the back.  All the papers came from a card kit which had been in my stash for at least 4 years.  I never did make any of the suggested cards, but at least the papers and one of the the sentiment pieces were used here.

     Once all the papers were layered onto the back side of the frame, I added dimensional foam tape to adhere it to the card front.  I added the sentiment and the polka dot bow and left it alone, wanting the focus to be on the folded papers.

Iris folding is something that looks so difficult to do and looks wonderful, especially with papers you have used, this is lovely.
