I like these patterns as they can be done in any colours, so you can be really creative in your colour choices – or use them to finish off all your random scraps and odds-and-ends of papers!

These cards are ideal for clearing out your paper stash to make room for some lovely new papers!

Iris Folding Square – Design 1

This design is the easiest of the two to fold.

It doesn’t have the traditional iris folding ‘swirl’, but the actual folding technique is the same.

Simply fold your paper strips and stick them along your cutout following the pattern, just like you would with any other iris folding pattern.

Iris Folding Square – Design 2

This square iris folding pattern is a little more complex.

It probably comes more under ‘fancy folding’ than iris folding.

Instead of simply folding your paper strips in half, you nee to fold them into triangle shapes to complete the diamond shapes on the template.

The concept is still the same, you just need to be a little more creative in your folding as the papers are folded to more than one line on the pattern.
