Iris Folding

As alot of you will know as well as walking and baking I also enjoy doing some Craft work, I enjoy making cards too and the technique I enjoy most is called Iris Folding.

Iris folding is a fun and easy paper folding technique that can be used to make greeting cards.

Iris folding is very versatile in that any type of easy to fold paper can be used. Left over Christmas wrapping paper works great, so do envelopes, the one’s with the blue patterns inside.

The technique originated in Holland and it is called Iris folding because the center of the design resembles the iris of a camera or eye. Traditionally, origami paper is used for the main design and holographic paper is used to fill in the center of the design.
