Iris Folding

This card uses what's known as the Iris Fold. It's used a lot with material crafting where the material is folded over. When I first tried making this type of card, I would fold the paper over. Well, material may fray, but paper usually doesn't, so it's not necessary to fold the paper when you're doing the Iris Fold technique on a card or scrapbook page or anything where it's a paper crafting activity! That's good, because doing an Iris Fold makes for a hefty card as it is with just an unfolded paper.

I got a template for making this card from Robin Messenheimer. She has a video on her blog that explains the whole thing. It's great. If you have the time, check it out. Of course, when I CASEd her card, I changed it up a little to use what I have on hand. Go ahead and give the Iris Fold technique a try. It's fun and easy.
