This is an iris fold. I made these in a waterfall card for my 8 x 8 album. In traditional iris folds you fold strips of paper in half then line up the folded pieces to the design sheet that is temporarily taped to the cut out picture or frame. In these iris folds I didn't actually fold the paper I just cut it into straight pieces since the folds would have made the design to thick and chunky. You can find patterns online for iris folds or you can make a cut out of your own picture. You then put the pattern on to the cut out so you can see where the lines are and line up your papers on the lines to make the iris fold look.
