Yes, I have done many teabag folded cards...I learned it from this site: circleofcrafters.com ....There are many talented people there who make and share tiles for everyone to use, they also have lots of links to folds, and other tile resources. I hope this helps you!

There are some instructions here :http://www.cardsandcrafts.freeservers.com

You can also use wrapping paper (smaller sized patterns on the paper work best), tissue paper, thin foil from various sources like candy and flower shops, and thin/lightweight DP.

P.S. I got hooked on TBF from Circle of Crafters a year or two ago--the link is above in Marie Honey's post. It's the best resource I've found online, and the online community is wonderful--very friendly folks.

Hey, I thought I'd *never* find teabag folders on SCS! How fun!

I have a teabag and an iris folding project that will be published in a few months in a book on folding!

The Circle of Crafters site sure has a lot of great and helpful info!

I like using Origami papers or pretty patterned text weight papers for teabag folding, too, if that is of any help!

Default Crane papers & note pad alternates

I also like to use crane folding papers from oriental bargain shops. I have found that there are generally two sizes. I prefer the smaller size but sometimes I make do with the larger one, either using them as is or cutting off two sides on each paper (make sure to cut on the same sides each time). Another thing I have done is buy cheap but nice writing pads and cut the squares from the same part of 8 sheets of the paper. Depending upon the pattern on the paper, I have managed to get 18 sets from the one pad. I also find using a square hole punch faster than cutting by hand and more accurate.

Default teabag folding

I love doing it....I use origami papers also but have found books of pre-printed ones at Amazon .com. I also make my own papers from wrapping paper using square punches for accuracy. folders unite-------we could cover the world!!!!!!

This is an old post. Sorry to it put it back into life but I found its existence while browsing (spelling???) JD from PAUSA's gallery and wanted to say that I am also a tea bagger. Actually I started card making on Circle of crafters as well and learned there tea bag and iris folding. Now you have also World of Crafters. Both are great sites.

I had to give a chuckle when I read your post. You might not want to call yourself a "tea bagger"! While I don't do Tea Bag folding officially I love some of the designs I see out there.

In my circle of friends there are five women who call ourselves the Tea Bags and we're all in our early to late 40s age-wise. One of the members has a daughter in her young 20s and she laughed uncontrollably when she heard our unofficial name. Just Google the term "tea bagger" and tea bagging" and I'll say no more. Her mother was horrified when she saw what that means in today's world. I never knew this and I consider myself pretty hip and up on whats going on out there ... but I guess you never know what you'll learn from the younger generation ... even if it is stuff you don't want or need to know LOL! I hope I haven't made this topic too risque!

oh my God!!! I've googled and, well, you didn't made the topic too risque, I unvolontarily did it. I think that if you don't learn anything and if you don't laugh once in your day, it's not a good day. I can say today is a very good day.

How do you call someone who loves making tea bag folding then ? Well I think I've just answered my question while typing: tea bag folder...
