Paper Tools

6" Bone Folder

Metal Ruler       Hole Punch

This sturdy paper folding tool utilizes the strength of real bone to ensure a long and productive life for your craft needs.

The bone folder is used to put a heavy crease on the folded edge of paper. Fold by hand first and then use the bone folder to fix the edge. When using the bone folder, hold it in a loosely gripped fist with fingernails lightly resting on the table with the bone folder resting on your fingertips and your thumb on the opposite side of the bone folder. Apply a downward pressure with your thumb and your fingernails will drag along the table surface next to the edge of the paper. The tapered end of the bone folder should be applied to the edge of the paper, don't dig into the paper, use the flat side to compress the fold.

Our handmade papers are formed one at a time with a mould and deckle. They are made with 100% post industrial waste and are 100% tree free, acid free paper. Embedded in this stock is our unique North American Wildflower seed blend. The seeds will need four hours a day of direct sunlight with constant watering until established. The plants can grow to as tall as three feet. The seeds include Spurred Snapdragon,Tussock Bellflower, Creeping Thyme, Lilac Godetia, Foxglove, Catchfly, Monkeyflower, English Daisy, Red Corn Poppy and Showy Evening Primrose. This blend is specifically designed to allow us to print directly onto the handmade seed paper and for safe propagation across North America.
