Handmade business cards

Recycling paper into marketing materials

Last week while dabbling in Pinterest I saw a label for handmade jam that was beautifully designed, and it motivated me to rethink the labels we use for our paper making kits.  

A graphic artist I'm not, so it took a lot of trial and error, and printing and reprinting until my new design came together.   Afterwards I gathered up the trail and error sheets, and made paper.

Happy Paper Making!

While doing some reorganizing this morning I happily came across some hand carved stamps I had made a few years ago. Other than stamping my business cards, I haven't done any "fun" stamping in awhile. The picture above is a stamp print on handmade seed paper, made with our 2x3" business card size mold and deckle.

Below is the actual stamp I carved on a Staedler eraser.

By the way, a free mini seed paper kit is included with every papermaking kit and mold and deckle. It includes seeds that work well in papermaking, as well as simple explanation on how to make seed paper. 

Happy Creating!
