Barbara here for the Tuesday inspiration over at Craft-Dee BowZ. I used to work with an old technique, Iris Folding, and I thought I'd make a card showing off this really great technique.
Years ago this was so popular. However, I have not seen this lately, so, I thought I'd make a card and put some Iris Folding on it.
There used to be books that were available, however, the only place I am seeing some of those books is on Amazon.
Also if you go to Pinterest, you will see quite a few patterns that may be of interest to you.
Let me share my card with you.
Iris folding is a great way to use scraps of designer paper, using scrapbook weight. Cardstock weight is too thick, because of the folding of strips of paper. I took the liberty of adding some dark green strips between the DP. This, to me, just adds additional interest and definition to the image.
That bow is made using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
I made a triple loop bow.
If you are bow challenged then this is the tool for you.
Its small, lightweight, takes up little space and is easy to use.
Let me show a closer view of my bow
I used a sheer ribbon, my fav.
It's a triple loop bow and sits in the front bottom corner, the perfect spot
