Back to the beginning...

When I saw this cue card all I could think of was teabag folding that was popular when I first started card making all those years ago.  So, having found some lovely rainbow teabag papers in my stash I proceeded to fold eight of them using the 'kite' fold.  I then glued them together to make a rainbow fan shape.  Like kites my fan needed a 'tail' so I found a long forgotten tassel along with a metal fillagree to which I added a diamonte (gem).  I covered my base card with a DP from The Works and then attached my assemled fan.  The silver corners are peel-offs.

It made a nice change to do a technique I enjoyed years ago.  

So, with that in mind, what long forgotten technique did you enjoy doing that you no longer do?

This is lovely, what a pretty card, I love the rainbow teabags. I have done some teabag folding but not a lot. It does make for a pretty card, I used to make loads of ATCs once upon a time but not done any for years now. Hazelxx
