Cooking with Cricut Challenge #72

 (find it here)

THEME-CHALLENGE: Grown-up Valentines theme.  
You must use a brad and the color black on your project. 

This challenge is hosted by three Cooking with Cricut Design Team members:  Kemma (that's me!), Dalis and Michelle !!

I was inspired to do something different for this card.  I had heard of tea bag folding in an iris folding class I took in December at my local library.  I was searching through some of my books and happened to find one showing how to make this design.  It involves taking little squares of paper and folding them up rather intricately and then putting them together to form a pattern.  I used George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut out 8 2x2 pieces for the center design since I did not have a square punch that size, using the white side of the paper for half, and the design paper for the other half.  That is one of the neat things about having a Cricut, I can make a bunch of the same shape really quick and easy with it.

So pretty! I love the folded design in the centre - it almost has a origami look to it. :)
