Iris Folded Maple Leaf Card

I’ve loved iris folding ever since I first came across it a couple of years ago. It has a lovely appeal and I know first hand that the people I’ve given iris folded cards have been amazed at how beautiful they are. Most have never seen this technique before.

Iris-folding is super-simple, you can make this leaf in just a few minutes! Grab a free pattern from and join me in the video below!

Some helpful items are carbon paper (for tracing your pattern on your cardstock), tape, zots for attaching to your card, & a craft knife. Then embellish with beautiful Peel-Off Stickers, and you have yourself a real gem!


A Wedding Card

Wedding Card

Have you ever heard of Iris Folding? Well, I hadn’t until a few years ago. Turns out that it’s so easy but looks fabulous. You can go online and look for free iris folding patterns. You will get a pattern, and all you do is lay out ribbon or papers in order (it’s numbered) and tape them down as you go.

This is a bridal shower card I made recently. In fact, I have the privileged of playing the piano at the wedding this Saturday! I’m sorry that I don’t have permission to give you the pattern. I used satin ribbons to make the bells and bow on top. The corners were punched with my southwest corner punch, and the beautiful silver accents are simply peel-off stickers.
