Thank you Nikki for the info on envelopes. I didn't have time to look at it much but bookmarked the site for future reference.

Does anyone know if there are other patterns out there besides COC and their message boards? I looked in Michaels and they didn't even know what I was talking about.

If you can go to a stamping store, you should be able to find a book on Iris folding. Otherwise, try the library.

Oh Hobbit...where are you? lol
I like the patterns on COC but I just was thinking if I get into it more, I want different patterns. no biggy!!
I gave a card to a gal at work yesterday. She was showing it to everyone. Another gal commented today that it was a gift in itself...I kinda feel the same way ad I would never throw it away. My daughter also said today that her husband loved his card I made for his bday. So I guess that everyone likes the iris folding too.
now on to more cards...lol

What is COC? I had another thought. I have a simple stencil book too that I can use for patterns.

Well I guess I am way behind the crowd here. I just started reading these posts, altho I have been a member for a long time. I get together with a group of 5 ladies ( Red Hatters all... ) once a month to make cards. We had talked about iris folding and did it once. We all take a month and "teach" something new, Thank you all-- esp you Dixie Lee- for the site you suggested. I know what I will be showing when it is my month. Razzer<!--graemlin::p--> Carole

Welcome Carol T, everyone knows I am not into scrapbooking and I have no pretty paper, tried to print some on COC but not enough ink. So my Mom always told me where theres a will theres a way. Guess what It works great with fabric, too. Made one with satin and one with (I cann't spell it) Leame. Matalic shiney stuff. They look good if I do say so myself.lol

Hey everyone, I thought my ears were burning.

Glad you signed on with the COC, Boopnut. Maybe I will see you there. You will find that the ladies there are really helpful. If you have a stencil book, all you will really need is the pattern making samples they give you, and follow instructions. At least for the first time or two, that is what I did. Be sure and check out the web site, and the section on the idea gallery.

So far I have only made a couple of my own patterns, have a few in the works. Trying to get Valentines done right now. Doing Cinderella's & ballerina's for the grandaugters, and a lizard for the grandson.

You can use any kind of paper, even the pages out of a magazine. Nicky I bet the material card is beautiful. I use a lot of ribbon on mine.

Like Ter says we want pictures, we want pictures. Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

Well I'm off for now, need to get busy with the cards. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Opps, sorry I didn't welcome CarolT to our group. Welcome, Carol, glad to have you with us. I am the one that is always defecting to the COC, to do more IF, and stock up on patterns.

Judy, this is for you, if you go to the COC, there is a picture of three ladies sitting in a circle. Click on the picture, and it will take you to about 8 pages of pictures of IF, and when you click on them it will take you to the site that has the patterns for those particular designs. As far as I know there is only one pattern that you have to be a member to get the pattern. Give it a try, I think you will like it.

I probably have over a 100 patterns saved, some I have already sized, lamenated and cut out,I have 3 large loose leaf binder filled with patterns, that are ready to use. By lamentateing the pattern I can use them over and over. Some I just have in a special file or two on my puter, for when ever I might need them. I use word to bring them in and then size them to fit my card.

If I can help let me know.

Hugs to all Hobbit

Thanks Hobbit. I did start going through some of those on COC but it overwhelms me...hehehe..I did see a post by you there...I have some printed out to use tho. I did a stick horse for my grandsons third bday. He loved it...he has a stick horse named Charlie at my house...so he had to call me when he got home and thank me for the "Charlie" card!! I got my supervisor at work started on the IF now. She just loves it too. I started off showing her your card...she thought it was so beautiful as I do.

Judy, glad you went to the COC site, and you are right, it can be overwhelming at first. I'm glad your grandson like his stick horse, I remember seeing that pattern.

But you will find that they are a great bunch of gals. They are all so willing to help.

I wanted to make a base clarinet for my grandaughter who is in her HS band, I didn't even know what it looked like let alone try and make a pattern. So I put a request for one on the message board. first one of the gals posted a photo of one, and then the next thing I know "swissmiss" is posting a pattern for me. Am working on it now.

I also think it is kind of fun that they are from all over the world. I also like the way you can post on the site, it is so easy, you don't have to go to photobucket first.

Anyway if you need anything just let me know. I am not an expert but maybe I can point in the right direction.

You know all of this started because of Rudy, she mentioned it in a thread, and of course I had to check it out, Razzer<!--graemlin::p--> that was all it took.

Love you Rudy Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

Hugs to all of you. Hobbit

I told you some time ago that Rudy was the ring master here...But that is ok..I love the IF and I got another gal at work started too. They said I should teach some classes on it...not sure right now..but could be an idea.
