Mulberry paper is a form of handmade textured paper. It has long fibers which helps to give the paper its distinctive finish and a fine wispy edge when it is torn and this makes a very attractive finish. Because mulberry paper is handmade, no two pieces are ever quite the same.
Mulberry paper is ideal for rubber stamping projects. While the surface of the paper is textured and therefore makes it difficult to stamp directly onto, mulberry paper makes a wonderful background for layered projects. Mulberry paper can be used in many rubber stamping projects. It is great for handmade cards and also makes an interesting addition to a scrapbook project.
Mulberry paper can be cut with a pair of sharp scissors or by easily tearing the paper leaving a decorative wispy edge. Torn edges can be achieved by wetting the paper and teasing the edges with your fingers. The edges of the paper can be dabbed with ink to emphasize the torn finish.
