It has been quite a while since I’ve shared a new teabag fold with you, so here is a new one, the Four Directions Star.
You only need 4 squares of paper for this one. As long as they are square, any size will do, though for mine I used 1-7/8″ squares.
Take your first square and flip it over to the white side.
Then you want to fold it in half and unfold it.
Now take the bottom half and fold it to that center fold line.
Repeat with the top half. Unfold both.
Take the top left corner and fold it down along the top fold line.
Fold the bottom right corner up to the bottom fold line.
Now, fold the top section down along the previously made fold line.
Take the top right corner (folded over now) and fold it down to the bottom fold line.
Fold the bottom edge up along the bottom fold line.
One piece done! Fold the other 3 the same way.
Take the right point on each piece and that will be what you are lining up. The first piece, keep laying horizontal and put some adhesive along the center, but slightly to the left. Put the point of the next piece at the top along the center (to the left side of the center). Put the third piece in the same position, but along the second piece. The fourth piece will go in the same position on the third piece (it will be going down towards you, now). Put the fourth piece on top of the third piece, but under the first piece. It sounds confusing, but is quite simple if you watch the video below.
Thanks for spending some time with me today!
