Teresinha’s Handmade Paper

Teresinha's handmade paper
Teresinha makes handmade paper from shredded plant fibre, shredded computer printout and banana and onion skins, sweet corn husks and tassels, leeks and straw. Seeds from dandelion clocks and from other plants provide further interest. These are incorporated into the design panels of her greeting cards (now on Tropical Birthday Cards and Tropical Valentine Cards).
