Tea Bag Folded Tree Instructions

There is no way I could possibly write out the instructions for the fold for this tree, so instead, I've placed a link here to a You Tube video. The card this lady is making is also very cute!!!!

(SNAIL Adhesive used to assemble unless otherwise noted.)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Cherry Cobbler card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Use Lace Ribbon Border Punch and Very Vanilla card stock to make a strip of lace 3-3/4" long. Stamp greeting on Very Vanilla card stock with Chocolate Chip ink; punch out with on Decorative Label punch. Use Stampin' Sponge to sponge Chocolate Chip ink around edges of all Very Vanilla pieces (Lace Ribbon, Decorative Label, and 5-1/4" x 4").

3. Adhere 5-1/4" x 4" Very Vanilla card stock to front of card.

4. Use Big Shot and Stripes embossing folder to emboss stripes on Wild Wasabi card stock. Use Two-Way Glue Pen to adhere Lace Ribbon about 1" from right side of card stock. Wrap Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin ribbon over Lace Ribbon and adhere on back of card stock. Punch Decorative Label from Cherry Cobbler, cut in half lengthwise, and adhere to back of Very Vanilla Decorative Label so about 1/8" of Cherry Cobbler shows at top and bottom of label. Adhere over ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

5. Follow directions in You Tube video above to fold Designer Series Paper, and adhere to front of card as shown. Use Crystal Effects to adhere Jingle Bell at top of tree.

I hope you enjoy this fun little project! (Yes, it's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas . . . .)
