Iris Folded Dragon

Hello, Hetty here with a fun technique card. Have you ever tried iris folding? It does look very complicated, but in fact is is super easy. It is just a bunch of folded papers and some cellotape and a template to follow. I found this free template of the dragon HERE. Now you can give it a try too. Click on the image, it will get larger and you can safe it to your computer with a right mouse click.

For the dragon I used various gold colored papers and the eye is a brad. The background is embossed. I did that before I cut out the dragon shape.

You find the birthday sentiment with kanji here.

Thank you for looking

and have a creative day!

    Beautifully done Hetty. I wish I could get the hang of Iris Folding because you’re right, it looks complicated and very artsy. Love it! Peg

    Oh Hetty, how very clever. I love iris folding, I did a lot of these before I started stamping. Such a great technique to use with a dragon, as it adds to the feeling that he has scales. And the sentiment finishes it off perfectly! Love the gold framing around the dragon panel too, another great addition to the Eastern, oriental look of the card.
