I did it! I tried my hand at Iris folding.
The ornament is made with copper, gold, silver metallic papers and red card stock. The center and top I cut from some red glitter photo corners in my stash.
Sentiment (Verve) is heat embossed with copper EP.
You can't see it in the photo but I scored lines in the blank spaces between the pine papers.
I made a tag too. Actually, I made it first. The beautiful Birch Press tags on day 7 of the 25 Days of Tags with the multi-layers was what got me thinking about iris folding. I especially loved Eloise's and Tracey's tags. Because it was my first time to do iris folding (and thinking it might be my last if it was too difficult) I went with a Christmas tree. I thought it might fit on a tag better than an ornament.
It was hard to get a good pic of the tag. The first photo shows the cuts and the second photo shows the shine. The snowflakes are stamped and embossed with silver EP.
Well, there you have it - my attempt at Iris folding. Glad I tried it.
