First step, make your flower using Tea Bag Folding. (As shown in photos above)
After you have made all ten of these, glue them together.
That is called a Kite Fold.
Then I took my handmade paper using Arnold Grummer's Paper Making Pour hand mold (found here) and sewed a border around each piece. And glued them down using Craft & Hobby Glue.
I then used Tea Bag folding using the two pieces of 2 x 2 paper for the butterfly.
And glued that onto the card face. then using my Scrap Dots, I glued down my flower making it also pop up a bit.
I then added my "Happy Birthday" image and I had a card. Can you see the yummy handmade paper? I love the background one.
Tea Bag Folding is very similar to Origami like I said, give it a try. And while you are checking out the Pour Handmold in the Arnold Grummer store, check out all their other products they have to offer to offer, you will fall in Love! Making your own paper is so gratifying, you really have to try it.
