Tea Bag Foldings
This is a folk art that developed in Europe where tea came in colorful wrappers, too pretty to throw away. A new art form was born when these little squares of colored paper were folded in repeat designs, similar to Origami (Japanese Paper Folding), to make 3-dimensional ornaments and beautiful handmade greeting cards.
