Traditional paper styles such as quilling, origami and iris-folding are big news right now in the crafty world. People are building on their technique repertoire and we think Christmas is the perfect opportunity to join the ranks and give something new a try. Iris-folding is very simple but achieves intricate and ornate results that look excellent worked into cards. Our designer Niki Rowland has produced a fabulous bauble card that can easily be copied.
