“Teabag Folding Fun” $30 by Marj Marion
Tea Bag Folding is easier than you think, and lots of fun! Instead of many steps on one piece of paper to make a design, you fold just three or four steps on several pieces of paper, and join them together in fascinating ways. We'll use delightful papers, irresistible stamps, inks and some bling to create beautiful cards. Student packs may differ slightly in color or paper, but all are similar to the class samples. If you missed Marj's January class, or just want to make some more Tea Bag folded cards, this is your chance. Please bring your basic kit, and a small trimmer is helpful.

"Bird on branch...
Here's a very simple card featuring the brand new stamp
Bird on branch
I embossed it with Ranger's black embossing powder
and colored it using Copics.
The gorgeous paper "Peace" from the Emotions Collection
was perfect for my card.
For the background, I used one of the stencil
Floral Backgroud Trio 6x6
with embossing paste.
I hope this inspired you!"

Leaving you with this clever e-mail I received this evening . . . I know these have nothing to do with card making, paper crafts, mixed-media, etc., but I'm into humor during these gray days. I hope you don't mind!
