This is my first attempt at creating my own pattern for iris folding. Details:
- I created my own kite with Silhouette, cut it out, and used the shape to trace the kite onto copy paper. This is what I used to create the iris folding template.
- The main learning is that the first lines you drawn need to connect outside the shape! I used these instructions to create my own kite pattern. You will notice that the pattern has a big shape at the bottom. I didn’t prefer that so I divided that into three sections when I was placing the strips.
- The top layer was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I thought it looked like wind! Then I inked it with white stamp ink to bring it out.
- I used the die cut of the kite tail on the back!
