Iris Folding is one of my all-time favorite crafting techniques.
Iris folding is a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way to form a spiraling design.
The center of the design forms an iris -- similar to the shape of the iris of a camera lens.
I know it looks like it could be complicated, but really it is not. You work with a pattern. Follow the pattern, and you can't go wrong.
The basic iris folding patterns are the circle, the square, and the rectangle.
