I have been a huge fan of the Iris folding cards from H&M Design since I first saw them years ago. They are stunning to look at and I have been very curious as to how they are made. When the idea for doing classes first came about I just knew that I had to get Megan to teach Iris Folding for the very selfish reason that I wanted to know how to do it.
I Learn Iris Folding
We had our first Thea-Bel class earlier in the month (it was so much fun)! Here is a quick look at the project that we were going to be tackling.
Before the class started I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Megan about what we could all expect. Check out our video:
After the camera stopped we got down to work on our very own cards. Megan had a few different paper colour options that we could choose from and after a quick lesson we got down to work. Surprisingly my first attempt came out really well. I have to say Megan is an amazing teacher! Although mine is nowhere nice enough to sell on the site it was not as awful as I thought it might be (let's just say I am not embarrassed to give it out this Easter). It also didn't take as long to finish as I thought but having all the supplies ready to go certainly helped as we could jump right in.
During the class we were all able to finish two cards. Below were the first ones made by Megan, Lorna (thanks for letting me show yours) and mine.
Can you tell which one is mine? Don't look too closely but mine is the middle one.
My second attempt was much better! I have to say I was very impressed with myself.
Below is one of the pictures I took of myself, Megan and Lorna (LB Creations). My second card was the one on the left, it turned out pretty awesome didn't it!
Such a fun class! Below are my thoughts after the class was over.
Thanks for checking out this blog post. If you like the idea of attending an upcoming class we still have a few spots left for the classes in April. You can learn more about them here.
In the comments please let me know if you would be interested in us having classes like this in the future.
