Another thing I've been excited about lately is Iris Folding. The craft might have begun in Holland, but is now pretty popular worldwide. The basic idea is layering folded paper to create an iris-like effect. I love how it looks, and I think making them is really fun.
You can arrange the folded paper to make any shape or pattern. Making cards does take a little time, though, so I've only done two--plus, I only discovered Iris Folding a few weeks ago. I did end up adding a little blue heart in the triangle in the middle to the card below.
Kaia, of course, is quite the little artist too! Here is a card she made while I made the heart card. I pre-cut the heart and circle for her, but she chose the paper, arranged the "balloon with a string," glued them down, added the heart so the recipient would "know we love her!" wrote a "K" on the paper because "it was from Kaia," cut out white cardstock to go behind the red construction paper part of her card, glued the red part to the white part, and decorated the white part with colored pencils! It was quite the little craft morning. Can you tell I'm a proud Mommy!
