Iris folding the spiral square

For those who have no idea what iris folding is, iris folding is done by arranging and layering strips of paper or even fabric in a spiraled pattern. That spiral pattern resembles the iris of a camera lens and that is how this craft got it’s name. Many people use this craft technique to create cards and embellishments for scrapbook pages, but I think the finished iris folded project could simply be framed and hung.

During this craft lesson you will learn how to align the pattern, cut and properly fold the paper strips, how to use and why use painters tape. During the final step you learn  a masking technic.
