-card base or panel
-basic die shape (or something to cut out a basic shape)
-strips of paper (this is a great way to use up some scraps!)
-optional: an iris folding template like this one or there are tons on the internet. You don't have to print it out; I just used it for a reference
Put a lot of adhesive around the shape on the backside of the panel. If you don't have a template, place your first strips evenly spaced around the cut shape. (I actually had to take this out and remove one of the strips of paper so the pattern worked better.)
This is what it looks like on the backside. You need a LOT of adhesive.
Continue adding the strips around the circle until you have filled in the entire shape.Merry Christmas sentiment. Once I finished the card, I just had to keep going, so I created an adorable little tag in the same way.
