The kit was for making iris folding cards. They are called this because the finished effect resembles the iris of a camera.
You start with a double fold card blank with an aperture cut in the middle panel. You place this aperture over the template:
Then you cut pieces of patterned paper into strips some 1/4 inch thick some wider (I just cut a selection) and starting with number 1 you cover the section and tape the paper in place. Carry in order adding strips. This pattern has 48 sections. You then end up with something looking like this:
Then you fold over the left flap and secure with double sided tape and you have a unique card. Here are the 2 I made this afternoon:
I'm rather pleased with them. What do you think?
