    This is the Waterbomb fold for tea bag folding:

  1. You will need 8 pieces of square paper. Place the sheet of paper with the color side down. Fold top left corner to bottom right corner. Unfold to get a diagonal crease.
  2. Fold top right corner to bottom left corner. Unfold to get a X crease.
  3. Turn the paper over.
  4. Fold top to bottom. Unfold.
  5. Fold left to right. Unfold. Push the paper towards one another at the arrows. This will cause the paper to fold along the creases to form a mountain shape.
  6. This is a classic origami fold called Waterbomb Fold. There are four flaps: two on the left and two on the right.
  7. To make the medallion, place glue on the right-side flaps. Slip another tile between the flaps that have glue. Press down to glue the two tiles together. Continue to glue the remaining tiles in a circle pattern.
