Glitz and Glimmer
Topic: Teabag Folding

I decided to go all flashy with this teabag folding and paper embroidery card.

I started with a medallion made of wrapping paper - cream, printed with gold and black. It also has more of a fancy fold, adding to the glamour.

I chose a shiny gold metallic cardstock to stitch on and worked the design in black and brown threads. A metallic brad holds the medallion in place and I added sticky back rhinestones to every other scallop.

So hard to photograph shiny metallics!

I used a cream base card to match the medallion and added a gold Dazzles sentiment sticker to the bottom.

Almost Quilted
Topic: Teabag Folding

I think this teabag folding card with paper embroidery looks almost quilted. It must be the way the stitching looks like a Texas Star quilt block.

I didn't have a cream colored thread to match the medallion so chose to use something that would echo some background lines in the paper. This border is a little small for the medallion but the way I arranged them in layering makes it look planned.

I used some sticky backed tinted teardrops around the border to pull in more blue and they show up better than I expected on the dark blue background.

I went with a cream card base to feature the medallion more and mounted it with a single brad.


I cut apart a Dazzles gold sentiment and mounted half at the top and half at the bottom.

Tippy Teabag
Topic: Teabag Folding

Here is another of the four cards I made combining teabag folding and paper embroidery.

This one is my least favorite for several reasons:

-- the frame is just a smidge too small for the medallion, making it look crowded

-- the yellows are a poor match

-- there was no way to align the points with the beads without covering the beads, making the whole thing off kilter

-- I was disappointed after I rounded the top corners

-- not enough space to add sentiment or decor but looks unfinished without it


I guess that means "If I had it all to do over again, I wouldn't"!

Tea On the Square
Topic: Teabag Folding

I haven't done teabag folding for oh so long! But I joined in a swap for cards that combined teabag folding and paper embroidery and needed to fulfill that challenge.

I couldn't decide between four different units so I went through my patterns and chose different borders for each of them, matched up papers and threads and jumped right in.

I used to do most of my stitching on the road (hubby driving) but we haven't been driving as much. This cut into my stitching time! Fortunately we had a road trip scheduled so I packed up my kit and soon had all 4 borders stitched.

This first one is what I finally selected to send for the swap - it's headed off to The Netherlands.

The medallion was tri-colored and I wanted to use all of those colors in the embroidery. I think this pattern is marked Linzoos but I have no idea where I got it, other than it was free online.

I chose a paper that looks like gauze and stitched up all the embroidery. The pattern calls for rice beads but I don't have any so I used bugle beads instead. I added matching seed beads and sticky back rhinestones.

The teabag fold is held in place with ATG tape as well as a single brad.

Branching Out with Pearls
Topic: Teabag Folding

ASSIGNMENT: create a care combining stitching and teabag folding

After stitching I added stick-back pearls to the centers of the flowers. I had this teabag fold already done and used two layers of pink cardstocks to bring out the color of the flowers.

Been a L-O-N-G time since I did teabag folding.

Christmas Quilt
Topic: Teabag Folding

For a friend who teaches quilting and loves cats, I created this card using 6 patterned papers and a teabag folding technique. Each of the blocks has a little punch of a plaid cat in the center.

The quilt got a coordinating sashing around the outside and is mounted with pop-dots on a text-printed cardstock with corners rounded.

I used rub-on 'stitches' on random places on the quilt and completely around the sashing. The date at the bottom is also rub-ons and the greeting is a premade tag.

Unique
Topic: Teabag Folding

This teabag was cut around the flowers before assembly for a decorative edging.

The button is a die-cut.

Again, this is severely color edited.

Flower-Stripes-Banner
Topic: Teabag Folding

 More teabag folding, this with square tiles using a simple pyramid fold.

When I am ready to send this one out, it will get a peel-off greeting inside the die-cut banner.

Laughing at Teabags
Topic: Teabag Folding

The colors on this are not a bizarre as they look here, I have done color editing to obscure the actual papers used as they were part of a product notyet released.

I haven't done anything with round teabags for years. This is a simple half-fold and I added one of the teabags to the center, as well.

Another circle was cut into quarters to serve as corner backets.
