Tea Bag Folded Christmas Tree Tutorial

We made this card at my club workshops in November. The tea bag folded Christmas tree makes a pretty and dimensional focal point. The Festival of Prints designer series paper stack provided the inspiration for the colors and gave the tree its unique patterns. If you would like to make your own tree just follow my step-by-step tutorial below.
