Pear-fect iris folding tutorial



Iris folding is one of my favorite techniques. It is one of the first classes I ever taught at area stamping stores. I love to use metallic Asian-theme papers or wrapping paper. For this card I used both! Autumn colors are my favorite, and pears are one of my favorite fruits.
Betty Bee's Buzz has a wonderful iris folding tutorial here. I hope you will give it a try! I find iris folding very therapeutic, much like coloring.

Hi June,
This came very pretty! I tried the Iris Folding once, it didn't seem to work for me. Too bulkie. But yours looks great! Also, Thank you for all the kind comments you have left on my blog. It makes me feel good to know my projects can inspire others.

I love pears and this looks fantastic! You asked about the spiral bits on my Christmas card JOY they are from the haberdashery section with huge spikes on the back and dangerous to work with.Have a nice weekend. Hugs from Trish
