Parchment Paper

What can you do with parchment paper?

You can embellish, perforate, stipple, cut, print on and colour parchment. Parchment craft has been around for many years, originally used to create religious devotional cards and more recently it has been used for regular greeting cards, certificates and wedding stationery.  With careful perforating you can even make parchment paper appear like lace! It's an entire art in itself!

The parchment we have on special offer at the moment is 145gsm in a natural colour,  perfect for card making projects, calligraphy and great for die cutting, like Sylvia, our designer has done here with this mistletoe (I know, bit early for Christmas but us crafters have to be ready!)  Sylvia told us she thinks the parchment will be ideal for vintage style crafts.

For the discounted price and all the details of great deals from Papermilldirect check out our special offers page.


See more from Sylvia at Designs for all Occasions

Wendy has used the parchment to make a wedding card and DIY matching envelope, she has embossed the card and heat embossed the handmade parchment envelope with gold embossing powder. See more from Wendy over on her blog Pink and Dotty.

The cardstock I use the most of is your white hessian cardstock. Love it for cardbases.
