Tea-bag Fold Valentine!

Project design ©Sharon M. Reinhart 2014
Almost Valentines Day, are you ready! This elegant Valentine incorporates tea-bag folding, layering, and the use of Washi tape and a decorative die. The tea-bag folded rosette is created with text weight black linen paper beginning with the basic circle fold and then folding the top layer back on each folded circle. The musical banners and strip are created simply with washi tape. To create the little banners simply fold the washi tape adhesive side together and trim one end in a banner or flag shape with scissors or a square or hexagon punch. The hexagon punch will have a slightly shallower v notch. The number 14 is actually from a sheet of Christmas paper intended to be for an advent calendar.
I thought this valentine would work equally as well for a guy or girl and this particular one may be given to my sweetie! Hope you like it and are inspired to create. If you want to learn more about tea-bag folding, the different folds and progressions please check out my Fabulous Paper Folds online class or DVD by clicking on the photos at the right.
Creatively Yours,
