    I love the torn paper effect. What made you do that? I’m just curious because it is very unique

    Well, paper is still largely a fiber product, which appeals to me as a former fiber artist. Tearing the paper exposes the fibers and also reveals the character of the paper, fine or raggedy. Thanks for asking!

    I found a bookbinding video on another blog and I have the kit now to try it. When I tear the paper it has the one raggedy edge, but it seems like the woman doing the video has raggedy edges all along three sides. I’m assuming she just uses a bigger paper that she must tear in more places. Do you know if there is a way to get the edges of a book or journal to get that appearance?

    Don’t know for sure, but it’s possible she’s starting with deckle-edge paper. The raggedy edge is actually created in the papermaking process.
