Papermaking: Botanical BeautiesDo you wish you could enjoy the beauty of your garden just a little longer? Do you wish you could share your garden with loved ones who live far away?

In this class, you will learn how to form handmade paper sheets using botanical-infused pulp, and you will learn how to embed pressed botanicals to create original greeting cards.
