I haven't made paper in a long time. I had a project to work on that involved paper making. (It goes with the peach project, which will all be revealed the end of this week.)
I made a ton of paper for this, filling them with veggie sprouts and seeds, and some flowers. I then covered a few moleskin journals with the paper, made some note cards and made a few wee journals. Even printed one with a block print I made.
I forgot how satisfying making paper is. I have a tendency to be drawn to pretty labor intensive crafts (weaving, knitting, bookbinding), so paper making seems like such instant gratification to me. I think there's also something so satisfying about making the materials for a project.
