If you look closely at the picture, you can see that iris folding is done by arranging and layering strips of paper or even fabric in a spiraled pattern. You can use this craft technique to create this stunning butterfly.
To make this iris folded butterfly, I used:
- Square Iris Folding Template
- Blue Cardstock
- Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter
- Cricut Designer's Calendar Cartridge (compare prices)
- 4 different pieces of Decorative Paper
- Paper Trimmer
- Cellophane Tape
Once you have all of these details figured out, you can follow my step-by-step iris folding directions and make your own colorful butterfly.
Remember, we always love to see your finished projects. Take a photo and then take a moment to submit a photo of your iris folding project.
