Tea Bag Folding 

Tea bag folding is a paper folding craft which originated in Europe and got it name because originally tea bag wrappers were used. It is also called kaleidoscope folding.

Small squares of identical patterned paper, usually eight of them, are folded exactly the same way and then combined in attractive geometric patterns to form a round motif or medallion. The finished design can be used on handmade greeting cards, decorative ornaments and as scrapbook embellishments.
