Seriously, I was just going to ask how it tasted!
This would have been a great alternative to spit wads in elementary school...chocolate wads! No one would ever want to send them flying across the room into someone's hair.

Teapot - no wonder you're so popular!  That paper is amazing...as is all the rest.  I love that the swallows and skulls are IN the paper!

I used a clever techinique of stenciling and frosting a cake. LOL. I made the sheet of paper, but didn't dry it. Then I made more paper pulp and put the colored pulp into a squeezy bottle. I made stencils fo each shape out of foam and squirted the liquid paper into the stencil. I took the stencil off, squeezed out the extra water, and put it onto the wet paper sheet. Then I dried them together and added the embellishments. That of course was my large project. Took me days and a few ruined sheets of paper that would have made a more impressive stack if I had not had to reblend them into new paper again.

I'm such a lucky girl! I'm a total freak for handmade paper, especially since I'm learning book binding.

I do have to say, I'm completely in love with the coffeebean/seed art. It's got it's own special spot on the studio wall.

I've got a bit of a cold, so I can't smell the paper, but I think I'll pass on nibbling it. hehe.

After time, the smell will fade. I sometimes put oils in the paper, but only for my use. I don't know what others will do with it and I'd hate to ruin pictures or something like that.

That's a good point. I think I'll reserve it for covering shrines or something other than mounting pics.

Oh, sorry. Yours don't have any oil in them. The flowers, glitter, and all the paper are photo safe. The cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate may not be. Not sure.

That paper is neat! Today at the zoo I saw paper made from elephant dung. I totally wanted some, but realized I would never use it so I didn't buy it.
