Fold 1, Fold 2, Fold 3

Surfing the web one day I ran across the Craft Creations Magazine.  They had directions for a Christmas tree using teabag folding titled "Tree Folds".
I changed the direction of the tree from the original and used silver cardstock for the base card.  The stripes of the left I cut from some fancy patterned Christmas paper that I had.  Originally the paper strip had no spaces between the stripes so I cut them apart leaving silver between each stripe.  I cut a tree pot from the same paper and I added a sticker star to the treetop.

The most work was finding a Christmas colored tile for the folding and doing the teabag folding itself.  The tile needed to have a border around the outer edges in order to recreate the look of the original.  One of the ladies in my card groups had the perfect tile for this card.
