Bah Humbug Challenge 43

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is fancy folds and one of the DT used the very first idea which came into my head as I read it so had to have a rethink.  I decided on some Tea Bag folding and made this seasonal wreath to which I added a gold ribbon bow and some jewels.  It is mounted on a Nestabilities circle which has been embossed with Cuttlebug snowflakes and backed with gold mirri which of course doesn't show up well in the scan. Background paper is from Dovecraft and squares were cut from the same design to make the wreath.  A simple card but it does feature folds.


  1. Hi nice card, never thought of tea bag folding for a wreath but it works well. Great idea. Hugs x ChrisB

  7. Oooooh Val,
    Your tea bag folded wreath is fabulous - as Ann rightly said, sometimes we can get carried away with the gadgets and need reminded of how effective simple techniques can be when done properly. Just wish I had the patience LOL! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
