Iris Folding originated in the Netherlands. Originally using the inside of envelopes, the paper was used to cut, fold, and place in a pattern. The result is a swirl of colors and patterns. Take notice of the envelopes you receive in the mail. The patterns are amazing! Today there are many paper options–tissue paper, wrapping paper, candy wrappers and more. I have quite a collection as you can imagine. I thought I would share some of my iris folding cards. These have been created for challenges in my Yahoo group. Thank you Jannie Bergkaarten for the patterns.
