Tea Bag Folding
great to see you here! Let me start by telling
you a bit about the art of teabag folding, or
hobby originated in Europe, the Netherlands to be
exact. A well-known woman (Tiny van der Plas),
who had already written dozens of books for
several hobby's and crafts, came up with a new
idea. Would it be possible to do something with
the colorful wrappers that the teabags are
supplied in? A new hype was born.
folding is actually a form of origami, only much
easier. By folding pieces of paper with the same
or matching images the same way over and over,
and putting them together in a mandala or
medallion, one can almost literally go on forever
and never make the same thing twice. Ready to
begin? Okay, here are the basics you need.
- teabags or kaleidoscope
- cutting mate
- hobby glue (make sure it's
white glue or "dry" paper glue)
- Double sided (Scotch) tape
know, it's a lot. You can add whatever you want
to the list: ribbon, glitter, colored sand,
anything! Okay, you got that? Here we go! First
