Iris Fold Dress Form

This card uses a beautiful paper folding technique called Iris Folding, named after the way an iris of a camera lense looks.  Long pieces of thin paper (Stampin' Up! Designer Series papers work best) roughly 1" wide are folded in half then layed and glued following a numbered pattern.  I don't recommend using cardstock; it becomes too thick and bulky to work with.  There are tons of patterns to be found on the internet, along with some great tutorials.  Give this technique a try...once you do one you'll find they are highly addictive!


Stamp sets: Aviary, Tea Shoppe
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Mocha Morning Specialty DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing folder, Sweet Stitches brads (retired), Snail adhesive, mini glue dots, Stampin dimensionals

Thanks so much for looking!

You're welcome to have your club meetings at the library if you need more space. Would love for you to have a demonstration sometime.
