Tea bag wreath....

This card made uaing Scruff from Animal Magic the latest collection,which is available from the usually place,Charmed Cards and crafts & designed by the multi talented Louise
I had an email asking how i made the tea bag wreath which is way back in december2007,HERE
i havent got a template and im sure it has been done before but i have done the following tutorial to help,if anyone gets stuck please let me know,please do not add my tutorial anywhere else without asking me.
Firstly you will need 8 sqaures to make this wreath and folded this way, if you dont know how to get to this point it is in my previous tutorial Here.
Take two folded tea bags and turn them over

Keeping one teabag with the 2points on the left. Line the second teabag point to the centre of the first teabag,with the straight edge horizontal along the line inbetween the 2 points,i have added a cross to show you where to lay your next teabag.For this shape,tape is better at it doesnt effect the right side.

Again turn the tea bags so the newly added teabag has the 2 points to the leftContinue,joining the teabags in the same manner,each time making sure the last teabag is at the top with points to the left When you have attached the last teabag to the previous one,simply join it in the same way to the first one in the ring,so you have a circle

Turn the wreath over and i then like to add stickles glitter glue and open the flaps slightly

Such a fun card Nicola and thanks for the tutorial. It's so annoying when you see something you like and haven't got a clue how to do it!
