Handmade Paper and Stitch

A few months ago I made some wonderful handmade papers.  I've been hanging on to them because they were too special to use for just anything.  Well, at some point you just have to get on with it and use your 'special stuff'.  There's no point hanging on to those little treasures forever, so I decided today was the day to start using them.  

As you may have read in a previous post, I make all my own greeting cards so I started playing with some simple machine stitch in the handmade paper and I'm really please with the results.  The paper stitches beautifully and I love the simplicity of the cards.  Fortunately the cards only need small pieces so I have enough left to make many more greeting cards in the future.

  2. Linda, your little cards are quite wonderful! Papermaking is one of the things missing in my little bag of tricks and I simply love the look! Perhaps I'll find some time and a class in 2012. One can only hope!

    Anne Marie, thanks for your feedback. Check with Sandra Spagnuolo re: paper making. A few of us (6 or 7) had a play date at her open studio where we made paper. It was wonderful.
