This listing is for ONE butterfly paper casted piece only..... we have sold out or used all others.... at this time.....

These are awesome - slowly upcycled paper and cardboard is hand dipped, then layer after layer - applied to a mold... In the area of the butterfly, additional layers and pulp are added. These take much more pulp than paper to make, and likewise, do not dry "flat" - they tend to curl somewhat..... However, I can mist the pieces of art, and flatten the edges, so much that I can use them in a scrapbook - they do become flat lying enough for that. The butterfly piece is 3.25" flat.

The color is a "medium wheat" - meaning that it is a beige -ish gray, with cardboard specks, comparable to our paper this color. These papers take days to dry, therefore we can only make about two sets per week. There are NO chemicals added to our papers during recycling - we figure there is enough of that from the first time the paper was made.

These could be painted, or lightly dampened and added to other upcycled paper/pulp. Also, could be used as jewelry, frameable art (probably after painting), or trim in a little girl's room. Would really set off a handmade desk set for a room with the theme of garden bugs.... or for the front of a journal for the butterfly lover.... just in time for spring!
