For this weeks card I wanted to show you how to do a favorite technique of mine, Iris folding!
I made this card using the following: Time Glitter Write from The Robins Nest Paris Collection, Clear Dew Drops, shiny paper for the inside and ornament crown, little pieces of scotch tape, scissors, adhesive, solid color cardstock and glitter glue
Print out two copies. One will be your work space, the other your template.
You only need to pick 2 patterns of the paper. Tape a piece of each pattern next to each row as shown. Alternating each pattern.
Cut some pieces as I did, with a wide end and pointed end and a large piece for later cutting.
From the second printout, cut out the ornament shape. This will be your template. Trace this onto your color cardstock. Carefully cut out the inner circle.
(Please click on photos for closeups!)
Continue with #3 and #4, taping down the pieces as you work. Flip up the cardstock at the taped hinge to see how you are doing.
Add the ornament crown, gliiter glue and dew drop in the center.
The Robins Nest has so many more beautiful papers for you to use when you explore the creativity of Iris folding.
