2nd attempt at iris folding
No picture this time! I made a heart - all the paper folding and scotch taping was fine ---- although using scotch tape feels very unnatural! My cutout of the heart - the actual template shape was not well done - I am a very poor cutter! Several websites recommend using a craft knife - my husband recommends I don't! I am a bit of a danger to myself with sharp objects! So - I guess it's back to the drawing board to practice my cutting skills = or I will just us paper punches or Sizzix dies - I am safe with those! I also found a website to purchase pre-cut templates. While this is expensive - it will be well worth it for "designer" shapes...I really like iris folding - it is so so so easy - and equally beautiful!
