Tea Bag Folding

I’ve been working on updating my website and I came across a tea bag fold card I made quite some time ago but I never got around to writing the instructions.  I remember when I made the card that I wanted a fold that would show the picture on the tile, but I couldn’t find a fold I liked.  After playing around a bit, I came up with my own.  It’s fairly simple, so I’m sure someone else has probably done the same thing.  After all, there are only so many ways to fold a square piece of paper.  Here’s the result:


Of course, in order to write down the instructions, I had to figure out the fold all over again.  Fortunately it is an easy fold!  Here’s a link to the instructions:


Here are a couple more medallions I made while figuring it out:



I thought the flip side of this one looked interesting as well.  It looks like it was made with completely different tiles:
