It is fairly easy to make your own. Take wide ribbon, craft wire and Aleene's fusible
web. Iron the fusible web on the back of the ribbon. Fold the ribbon in half (so that
the folded half will be the right length for a standard or fall) with a 12" piece of craft
wire in the center. Iron it closed. Round the top and bottom. Three for standards,
three for falls. Use a chenille stem and glue on as beard. Ta-dah. Your own iris.
