Kaleidoscope Creations


This idea came to me when I was thinking about the photo kaleidoscope scrapbook pages I made with photos years ago. I had to have the negatives printed in reverse for half of the pictures. Now that I've learned photoshop I thought "wow, what if..."

This is your basic kite fold medallion. The tiles were created with photoshop. I found images that I liked and resized them to tea bag tiles. I then flipped the image to get a reverse view. I chose a color with the color picker and created another tile with a gradient in the matching color. I found a link online at http://www.masikatiwebdesign.com/teabags/oteabags2.asp that allowed me to easily print the tea bag tiles in two different sizes. Then I printed them on a color laser printer. I had to make a trip to Kinkos to print the tiles, but I think it was worth it.

After folding the kite shapes I outlined the points with the Gelly Roll Stardust pens to give it just a little glimmer. Next I added bling and matted the medallion on the square cards. I'm not sure who will get these are for what occasion, but I will be ready!
