Tea Time at Oh Alice (Chapter 34)

A Mad Tea Party was the theme at Oh Alice this week. The challenge was to create something using tea bag folding.  It's hard to believe, but I had never actually tried the tea bag folding technique before. I had seen many cards using the technique and always said I would try it. Well, this was my opportunity and I can't believe how easy it was. I went to my favorite technique source, Technique Junkies, and found the instructions in the on-line bonus for Feb/Mar 2004 TJ newsletter. The only problem I had was that the cardstock I used (Graphics45 Halloween Alice) was more difficult to fold because of its thickness than a thinner piece of paper would have been. However a little patience and a smooth bone folder was all I needed. The stamp images are all from Oxford Impressions except the sentiment which is from TJ designs.
