Tea Bag Folding Instructions

Tea bag folding was originally done with tea bag wrappers, hence the name. Tea bag folding consists of folding little squares of decorative paper in a specific pattern and arranging the folded pieces to form a more-or-less round motif or medallion. The finished medallion can be used for scrapbook embellishments or on handmade greeting cards.
