Iris Fold Birthday Cards

Today, I felt like doing a little iris folding.  I have a huge box full of pre-cut papers and card blanks just waiting to be used.  They are mostly left overs from workshops I have done in the past.  I needed to make two birthday cards, so with the two recipients in mind, I selected the backgrounds and got to work.  I am very happy with the way they turned out.  Both cards are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

For step by step instructions that show how to do iris folding, go to:
