Draw will be held for this giveaway on Monday 15th August!!
As you have probably read if you have been following my exploites on here and Twitter, I have been re-visiting papermaking. This a fantastically cheap and eco friendly craft as you are re-using what already exists instead of sending it to landfill.
My first batch of paper using scraps of book paper were delightful with odd words left across the pages. Once dry, these were turned into product tags for my jewellery (see earlier post ...and now for something different papermaking)
Further experiments involved going around the garden and hedgerows and looking for plants that I could include in my paper. Don't worry I didn't go picking wildflowers, because as you know this is illegal under the 1981 Wildlife and Countryside Act. I collected some dandelion heads and some blackberry flowers and fruit, whilst in the garden I collected some lavender, rose petals and lemon balm.
So now I have a nice stack of paper and intend to make many more sheets so I am stocked up for the winter months. But I would like to share 6 sheets with one lucky reader. So leave me a comment and I will draw all the names out of the hat on Monday 15th August. I will announce the winner on here, Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks for reading and Good Luck!!
