August Craft Club - Iris Folded Cards

We created a lot of iris folded cards this month, all shapes and sizes.

Here's a square frame on a square pattern being made using the inside of envelopes!

August Craft Club - Iris Folding

We are going to have a go at Iris Folding this month, something I haven't done in ages.

When I first had a go many moons ago I used the inside of envelopes for the papers and amazingly this can be quite effective.

I used simple shapes to start with, like squares and ovals. I even did some dry embossing on the corners of the oval one.

I progressed to more complicated shapes all cut out with a craft knife (in the days before the Cuttlebug).

Simple Christmas trees can be made with triangles too.

Any aperture cards can be used.

I also did some cards from a kit.

I wonder what delights will be created this month.
