Adornit Blog Hop
For my last Christmas in July I have joined Adorn-it Summer Party. If you look on my right side, under my pretty picture, you will see the box that says ADORN-IT. Click on that and you will be directed to their site but I would really like you to start at the beginning. Here is the website:
I am number 13! Oh No...... lol
For my last project, I did Iris Folding. Here is the definition:
Iris folding is a technique that originated in Holland. Color coordinated strips of folded paper are taped into place over a pattern, creating a spiralling design that resembles the iris of an eye or camera.
What I did is create a "frame" with the tree in the center. You need this frame so you can tape the paper on to it. Take SCRAP Christmas paper, different sizes, and fold them long ways. They don't have to look pretty.
Take the SHARP edge and line it up with the number and the drawn edge and tape the paper to the frame.
Do this until all numbers are covered.
Now flip over to see your design. Trim the pieces of paper that are bigger than the FRAME edge if needed. Your done.
I am using 5"x6.5" pre made white cards and I glued matching solid color cardstock to the card, then I glue the Iris Folding design to the card. Add finishing touches and you have a beautiful card to give.
To get the pattern go to: http://www.irisfolding.circleofcrafters.com/irisfoldingxmastree.html
To get the GSD or WPC, not the pattern just the frame, click the title under my name as usual.
