Found a great site that some of you might be interested in. You could make some really neat embellies with the technique. It has tons of free pattes from butterflies to teddy bears, you name it. I think it would be great for using up paper scraps. Website address: http://www.circleofcrafters.com/irisfolding Here is a sample of what they do:
Oh, I remember ordering a kit from Anna Griffin when she used to be on QVC using this technique. Of course, it's unopened somewhere in my stash of Things to Do Someday!!!
The sample is very pretty, and Lisa….I don't remember seeing your paper doll???
After looking once more….that folding looks difficult. Very pretty, though. Elegant is more the word….
It's all about the fold.
cut your paper strips about an inch wide and then fold each one down the middle. Now you have a fold piece 1/2 inch wide or so. The folded edge should be a crisp fold, so I always go over the fold with my metal ruler.
Wow!! I remember this being popular many moons ago. it would be cool to bring it back…Swirly style!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
