Tea Bag Snowflakes ATCs

I had a really fabulous time learning more about Tea Bag folding with Sharon Reinhart over at Paper Pastimes last week. She is a wonderful teacher. She had us each create samples of what she was demoing and it really stuck in your brain when you do that. Came home, typed up what I remembered, made new samples and put them in my journal. And while doing that, I started assembling one of the triangular shapes and it started to look like a snowflake. That's how these ATCs evolved. The background is something I kinda of resurrected after seeing something similar when I took the White Christmas class.

There are 9 total, so click on image to see the rest. Enjoy.
I'm also using a Quietfire Design rubber stamp - one of the latest Xmas series. "Let it Snow"

And they fit for these challenges:
