About 'Summer Dress Iris Folding Pattern'
Get folding for your fashion-loving friends with this free dress iris folding pattern.
I designed this pattern to be a summer dress style, but it would also work well done in deeper colours such as red or black for a cocktail-style evening dress.
For an extra-special appearance you could try folding using patterned paper. I think a thin origami paper with a delicate floral pattern would look great.
In fact, papers like this could be perfect!
- 72 sheets 15 x 15 cm craft origami
- 12 different colours and patterns, each 6 pieces
- Materil: 80 gsm paper
- Fit for beginners or experienced people to practice the art of paper folding
- Suitable for sharing your creations with friends and loved ones
If you're making a card for someone with a summer birthday then that could be the perfect paper combination (or perhaps try this summer-themed birthday card instead?).
Some of these products could be used on your card:
The dress iris folding pattern is A6 size so it fits well on smaller cards.
To use it on larger cards you could print it at a larger size using your favourite printing program on your computer.
Alternatively, you could it as part of your larger card front and make up the rest of the space with different craft papers, embellishments or sentiments.
I love this pattern because it can be used for so many different occasions.
It's not only ideal for birthday cards, but could also work for 'Will you be my bridesmaid' cards (especially if you fold it in your wedding colours!), good luck cards, thank you cards or general note cards.

Iris folding takes a little bit longer than some other card making techniques, but the end result is absolutely worth it.
Once you've made a couple of iris folding cards, you'll never stop wanting to fold!
