Iris Folding is a fun and exciting way for all people to make spectacular greeting cards and framed art! This craft, using a simple paper folding technique, is done using a template, cardstock and colored paper strips. Some of the most popular papers used are colored envelopes, gift wrap, origami and scrap-booking papers, and holographic paper. This book is packed with over 40 full-sized templates and patterns, designed to fit a 5x7 greeting card or frame. It also includes something you won't find in other Iris Folding books. You will find instructions on how to make your own patterns and templates using a very simple method. Also, the book would not be complete without including four pages filled with greetings for placing inside your greeting cards. This could be the only book you'll ever need on Iris Folding!
This delightful project package includes the necessary pieces to create original folded card designs. Each fantastic offering, from geometric patterns to lettering and motifs, is accompanied by patterned, project-specific paper manufactured from A4 acid-free and lignin-free perforated sheets. Instructions for special folding techniques, including suggestions for how to embellish greeting cards and other unique designs, are also included.
Using the revolutionary Craft in Motion system of displaying movement on the page to demonstrate in flowing sequences, this guide shows how to create beautiful craft works using the relatively new craft of iris folding—in which paper or fabric strips are laid down in order around an aperture to create the illusion of looking at the iris of a camera. Following expert advice on ideal tools and materials for beginners, the basic techniques of iris folding are introduced. These techniques and possibilities are then brought together in six projects, which range from simple greetings cards for all occasions to scrapbook pages.
