Season of Love

We are fast approaching February and the season of love. Why not should your love with a card made from hand made paper?


Grab those red  and pink papers from the recycle bin or add red tissue paper to your slurry to create a beautiful paper. I used my Pour Handmold

Pour Handmold with Screens
to create both a pink and red paper.

To create the heart, I made paper pulp which I squeezed through a strainer to remove most of the water. I pressed the pulp into cookie cutters and removed as much water as possible using the sponge and wood block from my Papermaking Kit. These can be dried either in a low over (250 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes) or air dried. Once, dry, I painted the heart red.



I stamped the sentiment and inked the edges of the card and the pink papers. I added a Skeleton Leaf and twine to the heart embellishment.

Isn't this prettier than a store bought card? I think so.

Thank you for visiting today. If you need any paper making supplies please stop by the Arnold Grummer's website.
