I made this layout for a challenge at the Paper Wishes forum. The criteria was to use tea bag folding on a layout. Since nearly all of my scrapbooking layouts are digital, I didn’t think I would be able to join in on this challenge, but then I got an idea. Why not make some tea bag tiles from one of the digital paper packs I bought from Paper Wishes?
To make the tiles, I created a photo box 1.75” square, then I dragged one of the background papers into the square and zoomed in on the upper left corner. I copied the box 8 times and printed the tiles. After cutting the tiles out, I inked the edges, then I used a simple kite fold to create a frame. After assembling the frame, I scanned it, then used PaintShop Pro to remove the background and saved it as a .png.
I moved the finished frame into the same MyMemories embellishments folder where I keep the embellishments for this paper pack so I can use it again if I need to.
