How to Tea Fold with Ribbon

with Gwen Studios

tea fold heart

I have been intrigued with tea folding. For Valentine’s Day, I made a tea-folded decor piece using ribbons from Gwen Studios. Using ribbon was very easy to do because the edges of the ribbons are finished and don’t need to be folded, making the construction a bit faster.

Using a Cricut Maker, I cut white cardstock to 5″ x 7″ with a heart removed from the center for the background of the decor.

This pack of grosgrain ribbon and another in pastel from Gwen Studios was used for the construction of the tea folded heart.
