The iris folding technique, which resembles the iris of the eye or the lens of a camera, can be used to make greetings cards or a picture to be framed. Strips of paper are folded in half and then stacked and taped in a spiral design. For the cross pattern in this project, four color coordinated papers are used to create the design. I used flower themed calendar pages for this cross. Click on the photo to see a full picture of it. You’ll find the directions and pattern for this “Iris Fold Cross” project under the Easter Projects Gallery in right sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
