Iris Folding is a technique where folded strips of colored or patterned paper or ribbon are layered in a spiral pattern behind a cut-out pattern or aperture. It is called Iris Folding because it resembles the iris of a camera. We have loads of kits and patterns! Come in and we will show you how to do it! It's easy!
"Excellent selection of patterns for iris folding cards!!!! If you love to iris fold it is worth the trip!!" - Eva

Message from the Philippines
For those of you who have supported Marcia and her donations to the children in the Philippines, Marcia brought the store a thank you card from Sister Ethel in the Philippines.
From the card:
To the Most Generous Ladies,
Ate Marcia has told me how kind and generous you all are. Please know how much your gifts have meant to the children, young adults and teachers. If only you could see the smiles on the their faces.
We feel blessed to know you, if only from a distance. Your generosity is an inspiration to all of us
