2013-12-20 Covering up the iris fold blunder


I tried out a challenge to try iris folding. HERE is the template I used.

My iris folding was a lot less then stellar so I ended up decorating to cover up my major blunders.

Never having done the iris technique before I can say I probably shouldn’t have started with 6 different colors. To cover up the uneven center I decided to add a circle to the hexagon shape and then make it into a bird house. The bird and matching punch are both my Stampin Up.

To cover up some of the unevenness of the border area, I camouflaged with trailing vines, flowers and glittery berries.

At least I gave this technique a try. Next time I will make sure the template I print, prints with all of the lines so I can see where I’m supposed to go!
