Samples of Handmade Paper

I think handmade papers are beautiful...and amazingly simple to make.
Although some of the papers in this galley were made by me, most of them were 'traded' to me in swaps of handmade paper. One of the conditions of the swaps was that the contents of the paper must be included.
You can see with just minor changes in contents, a wide variety of papers can be made.
