Lady With a Hat

This silhouette and iris fold hat pattern is based on an image from a vintage catalog. It makes a nice birthday card or ladies' day out invitation.

  3. Trace around the hat pattern lightly with a pencil.
  4. Open the card and place it on a cutting mat.
  5. Use a craft knife to carefully cut along the hat outline you just traced onto the card front.
  6. Remove hat from aperture
  7. Turn the card face down over the iris folding pattern
  8. Place iris fold strips in order over the numbered spaces.
  9. Add a piece of contrasting paper and/or an embellishment in the last un-numbered space.
