Print both the Paper Iris and the Stems and Leaves patterns to make three paper irises. Print the black and white Paper Iris pattern on violet or blue paper, and the black and white (B&W) Stems and Leaves pattern on green paper.
Or print the colored patterns on white paper, but the pattern pieces will have white backs unless you print something on the back. The Wild Green Dots ePaper works well on the back of leaves.
To make a single iris from one pattern, print the All-in-one pattern on white paper.
These patterns for paper irises are from the Spring Flower Bouquet craft project. See this craft project for detailed instructions on how to make the irises and other paper flowers.
Patterns are Adobe PDF files. The Adobe Reader is available for free.
All of Aunt Annie's project patterns are designed to be printed on standard letter-size paper (8.5"x11" or A4). When printing from Adobe Reader, you may need to select Auto-Rotate and Center or Choose paper source by PDF page size to ensure the best fit.
