  • Iris folding

    I've learnt another new craft. Last Thursday night a friend showed me how to do iris folding - something I had seen but avoided because it looked complicated. It isn't! If you want to make cards and/ or pictures that look good but are easy to do, this is for you. Have a look here for ideas and instructions: http://www.irisfolding.circleofcrafters.com/ . For these two I used the inside of used envelopes, lots of patterns and shades of blue in them! Eco friendly cards!

        That's really good - I remember being amazed at how easy it actually was too!

        I have to be in the mood for iris folding but find it nice and relaxing. Here's one of the cards I taught in my workshop last week...everyone was a complete beginner and they all managed it with no mistakes



        Edit - whoops sorry didn't realise piccy was so big

              I love iris folding - it does get quite addictive. I like to save bits of wrapping paper to use, I really like the effect that different patterns & colours make. Hope you have lots of fun x

                      I hadn't thought of this, its a lovely idea. I have watched the video and printed off some patterns and will be doing it with my old folk on Monday. Not this one as it is Bank Holiday. It is something they can all do with little supervision. Thankyou. I do struggle with ideas sometimes.

                            Don't you bet on it Carol!!! No, to be honest most of my 'students' were fine with it although one or two needed a little more help than the others. When I taught it we all did the first 4 or 5 strips together and once I was happy they'd all got the hang of it (not folding the paper the wrong way or placing it upside down) I let them continue with the rest of the strips at their own pace.

                            You'll have to report back to us on how it goes
