I have not done too many things with Iris Folding but I do love the look of it.

I would be very interested in any photos any of you may have of iris folding projects you have done.

Here is a card I made with a simple iris folding pattern:

I also made a few simple Christmas gifts this year with iris folding:

I sure hope others have more iris folding projects to share!

lol I had to google that! Your items are beautiful Sheri! I think the first is my favorite, probably the colors, but I think it's so pretty and spring-like.

BTW a big Welcome to you, so glad you found us Big Grin

I am glad I found you too! Actually my sister pointed me in your direction. She is here too (Jeannie 63) she is just quieter than I am. She is the one who designed the first of the 3 Christmas cards I posted in the thread I started on Christmas cards.

We are both avid crafters, though she is by far more deversified than I am.

LOL Mom's not too big on computer stuff. We do have fun together and love to share our enthusiasm (Man I've got to open this up on FireFox so I have spell check, I'm sure that must be wrong) when we find a new product or craft!

lol Looks right to me! but I do love the spell checker, seems like I misspell every other word though....really slows me down.

Sheri these are beautiful - looks pretty complicated to me. Love the Christmas cards too. What great memories you, your sister and Mom are making together!

Thank Juanita and Chris!

Chris, it really isn't that hard to do. You have a pattern and cut out the basic shape on another paper, lay it over the pattern and then fold an lay down your pieces according to the numbers on the pattern.

A picture of a pattern might be nice.

My mom had never done the iris folding either, and she assumed it was difficult. The last time she came over, we did a small project. She quickly saw how incredibly easy it is - although she did admit it was a little tedious!

Ask and ye shall receive! (and yes, it can be tedious)

Many simple patterns can be found on line.
This is a very simple one to do:

you found some real nice ones Lynn! That last one, the Christmas tree, I actually did this year, but never finished off the cards. When we do our cards, most of us go home and make one more card for sending to each other so we don't receive one we already saw. I was doing that tree and had the Iris Folding part done before we ever had our card party. The weekend of our card party was when the bursitis in my left shoulder was just starting to cause pain (it was the first time I had it so I didn't know what the cause was) After that, my shoulder got so bad I was unable to complete the cards I had started for my mother and sisters.

OMG Sheri, that must've made you so sad, I'm sorry! Years ago I developed a pain in my elbow after incessant cross stitching, I finally stopped from the pain and haven't done it since. I know it's not the same, my elbow is better now, but I know how disappointing it is. Sad

I hope to complete them next year. The pain is "almost" totally gone. Not sure it will ever be totally gone. I do in home day care and it was impossible to let it rest the way I was suppose to!

The Iris Folding part that I do have done is upstairs. I'll have to take a picture of that and show it to you. One thing you can do, which is what I did with these, is to use a thin ribbon=no folding! LOL
