Right away a few women decided it wasn't something they would like to do so they took their supplies to make something else with and that's totally acceptable. My samples were card fronts with open backs so everyone could get a behind the scenes look at what Iris Folding looks like. The one above doesn't even have the middle piece in it so they can really get a good look at its inner workings.
The other three I put in middles and jazzed up a bit so folks could get an idea of the end result. Everyone received either a black, white or red card front with a square cut out of it, their choice of two patterned papers in black and white, and either a black, white, or red middle piece (which was really just the bit cut out of the card front.
While I think everyone who participated had fun I don't think I made too many Iris Folding converts. It is one of my favorite techniques.
The Fine Print: Black and white papers from Recollections and DCWV (I had two B&W paper pads), square hole via Spellbinders die, and greeting stamps by DeNami Designs. Did you notice the sample card that the cat bit a hole into?
