What Else Is Paper Good For?

I told you all in an earlier post that I love paper.  Here's something I did that isn't a card.

I have a teensy weensy addiction to handmade paper.  There's a link in the sidebar to Creative Papers.  They have the most wonderful paper ever!  100s of different materials, designs and colors from all over the world.

I bought some samples of Japanese paper.  Samples because the big sheets are $7.50 each.  Using DG3 craft glaze, I attached the paper to the back of a glass tile.  I found some nice ones on Etsy that are flat on the back, and rounded on the front.  No sharp edges.  It took several coats of glaze on the back, drying in between for at least 24 hours.  Then I attached a sterling silver bail, also from Etsy.

I've made a bunch of different ones and they're really fun.  It's a nice break from cards, and a good way to use scraps.  This also works with DP and book pages.

Thanks for visiting!
