I found a fun way to use
scrapbook paper scraps.
The technique is called Iris Folding
because it resembles the iris of an eye or camera lens.
Iris folding is originally from Holland.
It reminds me of flat Origami.
I'm going to make a card with a 2'' window.
I will give you a list of supplies along with the measurements.
1 tri-fold card
To make your own-
12 1/2'' long by 5 1/4'' high cardstock, folded into 3rds with
2'' by 2'' square cut in center of folded card.
I can always find extra envelops in my stationary stash.
It wound be easy to make your own if needed.
Print this pattern template at 2''
Cut 4 strips of each color 3'' by 3/4'' wide
NOTE: This template has 5 strips- but the center
picture was so small I used only 4
Here is another version :
This time we will alternate our 4 papers- A,B,C,D and around again.
Glue down the left side.
I don't see any difference between the two versions.
If you don't have any paper scraps,
you could use old magazine pages,
colored ribbon or fabric.
I tried some origami papers and music paper.
Have a blessed day!
