Halloween witch iris folding pattern

This is a great pattern to try out if you’re looking to expand your iris folding skills.

The folds themselves are fairly straightforward, yet the changing of colours as you fold means that the pattern may appear more complex at first than what you are used to.

For a simpler pattern that just uses one colour, check out the iris folding ghost pattern I posted last week.

If you’re new to iris folding, watch the video below to find out how to do it:

The free iris folding pattern comes with a colour key to help you make sure you are using the correct colours for each fold:

  • 1, 2, 3 = Broom straw
  • 4, 5, 6 = Broom handle
  • 7 = Hand
  • 8 – 11 = Hat
  • 12 – 14 = Hair
  • 16, 17 = Face & neck
  • 18 – 23 = Shoes
  • 24 – 45 = Cloak

I enjoy folding with different colours as it gives a more realistic appearance to the final card.

You can see in the photo below how it helps to make your iris folding come to life on your craft projects:

Iris folding witch on broomstick handmade card

I cut the witch silhouette from a piece of blue dapple-effect card that I had in my craft stash.

The blue card worked REALLY well for this handmade witch card as it looks like she is flying through the sky on her broomstick.

Once the folding was complete, I stuck the blue card to a piece of brightly coloured yellow craft paper and then cut a thin border.

To finish, I attached the whole thing to an A5 black card using my favourite craft tool.

Happy crafting,
