About 'Ribbon Bow Iris Folding Pattern'

Craft beautiful new baby cards or wedding cards with this cute ribbon bow iris folding pattern.

This pattern is suitable for so many different occasions, depending on the colours you use for the iris folding and the rest of the decorations on your card.

For my sample card, I've made a 'new baby girl' card with pastel pink colours.

This pattern is a little bit tricky to cut out as it has three different sections that you need to trace around and then cut out.

Each side of the bow is a different cutout, and the bottom "spikes" of the ribbon can either end up as one or two cutouts depending on how accurate you are when you're cutting.

Because of all the shapes, when you are folding close to the other apertures you need to be careful when sticking down your paper strips that the edges and corners don't accidentally overlap the other cutouts.

The circle in the middle of the bow has "PP" written on the iris folding pattern.

This stands for "paper piecing".

It just means that you need to cut out this part of the design from your coloured paper and stick it to the front of your card once all the folding has been completed.

I used a hole punch to cut the circle of the bow which worked out perfectly as it meant I had a perfect circle.

You could also use a small sticker or maybe even a pompom to form the "knot" in the middle of your ribbon bow.

Happy crafting,
