I've been playing with teabag tiles the past couple of days and I came up with a new (to me) fold. I don't know if anyone else has done this one before, but I haven't seen it. I was playing with the Zig Zag fold for round tiles and wondered if I could adapt it to a square tile. Why yes, I can and I like it.
For my card, I wanted to use a tile with the design radiating out from one corner, so I selected one of my pink tiles, sized it to 350 and cut it in quarters. Two tiles makes a medallion. I sized the same tile to 100 and printed five of them in a row for the strip across the card. I thought the colors in the tile match the Raspberry Berry and Bubblegum papers really well so I used those as well as a little lemon drop to accent the little bits of yellow that were originally part of the center of a flower (this tile was created from a photo of a flower). The card stock background seemed a little plain so I embossed it with the Love Letter embossing folder and then brushed it lightly with some Whip Cream ink to bring out the design. I also added Pink World sequins to the medallion to give it a little sparkle.
You can also mirror the fold for half of the tiles for a completely different look.
