They're Done!!!

Here they are! I am so happy to say that my iris folding book is done!! So here is a picture of my first five books ready to ship.

Here are the patterns included:

• Heart
• Double Heart
• Circle
• Apple
• Football Helmet and Ball
• Baby Rattle
• Birdhouse
• Maple Leaf
• Frames
• House
• School House
• Tudor Home
• Lion
• Giraffe
• Horse
• Eagle
• Labrador Retriever

The book also includes illustrated instructions on how to iris fold so if you've never iris folded but always wanted to try, here is your chance.

Because I am so happy to have these done, I am going to RAK (random act of kindness) one of my samples to someone who comments here before next Monday at 9 am MST. Mind you, the sample is far from perfect because I ran low on ink as I was printing it up. The pictures aren't as sharp, but the patterns are all there and its free! So please leave a comment to enter the drawing and I'll announce the winner Monday.

So how do you order a book if you don't win the RAK? Just click here to email me and we'll make arrangements for payment and shipping. The cost is $10 plus the cost of shipping and the cardboard mailer. I prefer payments by Paypal or US money orders. Also, I'm curious how many people would be interested in a CD instead for $10 that includes everything in the book or possibly a download? I haven't sold downloads before so that would be something new to learn but if there is interest I will gladly look into it.

Oh, and because I am so happy, I am going to post a free pattern. Remember, it is copyrighted, so if you want to share, please share my blog address instead. Thanks again for everyone's support!

Jennifer, this book is fantastic! I have tried iris folding before, but the instructions didn't look as clear as yours and there weren't many patterns available. I think this book is going to do quite well. Congratulations!

Maya said...

Congratulations Jen! the book looks awesome! There are not so many good iris folding patterns around so I'm sure your book will be a great success!

Congratulations Jen! The books look terrific and I can't wait to win your sample so I can show it to all my scrapping (iris folding) friends. LOL!!! The patterns look really good. I know I would love to be able to get your book on CD instead of hard copy. But not download; I go through too many computers for that.

I love the look of Iris folding but have never tried to. I'm wondering if there might just happen to be a pattern for a dolphin in there? :P

Great RAK!

Well done Jen

I would definately be interested in a CD as it is cheaper to post it or a download if you can do this - if I dont win!
In COC friendship : )
