Fold Challenge at the Cottage Studio

At the In the Cottage Studio blog today there is a new rumble challenge: incorporate something folded into your project! Here is my entry, along with some instructions on how I made it.

My friend Jody taught me how to make this, so I'm calling it "Jody's Teabag Holder". It's a folded 3 inch square card, just the right size to hold a teabag. Here's how to do it:

Cut a 3x9 inch of cardstock, and score at 3 inches and 6 inches. Then score diagonally as shown. Fold mountain and valley folds as shown.

I then trimmed a square piece of cardstock and stamped with images from Smiles and Rainbows from Clear Artistic Stamps. I also decorated the inside of the card with cardstock and stamps.

Next, attach the front panel to the bottom right corner of the card as shown. Then, punch a photo slot into the opposite corner of the card on the left side.

Now you can glue in a wrapped teabag, or anything else that is flat and smaller than 3 inches.

All that's left to do is fold it up, tucking the front panel into the photo slot. Now it's ready to give to someone! These also make great party favors. Have fun trying it out!

I think people are participating in this fold challenge and get lots of knowledge from here.So keep adding more and more detail regrading this.
