Iris Folding

Iris Folding

Iris folding is a technique that originated in Holland. Using colour coordinated strips of folded paper taped in place over a pattern, creating a spiralling design that resembles the iris of an eye. Originally, Dutch crafters would cut their strips from envelopes with patterned interiors, but now it is common to use lightweight papers including those used for origami or wide quilling paper to create iris folded designs.

The basic supplies you need to get started are minimal, and mostly made up of items paper crafters have in their stash: card stock, lightweight papers, a paper trimmer or ruler, scissors, tape, and a pattern.
