New Class - Beginning Iris Folding with Washi Paper

The ladies at the Senior Center, where I volunteer at once a month, have been asking me to do a class on Iris folding. I finally bit the bullet and came up with a class using washi paper. I've never liked how "thick" iris folding can get, so I worked on folding the paper differently to reduce the volume. I used the Cuttlebug to cut out the circles. It can't cut all the way through the finished iris folding but it leave enough of a line that I could go back and use scissors. I then matted it over with another cut out circle mat. I used scraps from my washi paper stash for the samples, so the card are not as "contrasty" as they will be in class.

I will be doing a class at my studio on Thursday November 20 at 11:00 - 12:30. I won't do one at Cranberry Hill because Anne does great advanced Iris folding classes there.
