  • Mulberry paper comes in very large sheets (24" by 35"). To get a piece the size you want use a Blender pen or wet paintbrush to wet a line where you want it to tear. Then tear it apart along the line you "painted!" It's that easy. Both the Blender pen and paintbrush work well, but I prefer the blender pen because it gives me more control as I draw my line.
  • Using the technique above you can do more than just rip it in a straight line! Try shapes, wavy lines etc. Just outline the shape you want as described above and tear away!
  • If you are tearing your mulberry paper and come to a thick strand that does not want to tear, simply pull out your scissors and give the fiber a little snip. Then continue ripping!
  • We sell mulberry paper in white only, but don't let that stop your craving for color! Just take your brayer and ink it up on your ink pad. Then roll it over the mulberry paper to color it any color you desire! The result a beautiful muted shade of mulberry tailored to fit your project! If you want the color slightly darker, try starting with an ink pad that is one shade darker than the color you want.
  • Mulberry paper is acid free, Lignin free and buffered so it is perfect for scrapbooking! It looks beautiful around heirloom photos or on any special layout.
  • Get creative in your uses of mulberry paper. It can do more than just matt a picture or stamped image. Try ripping it in circles to create a fuzzy snowman. Or use it as the fuzzy cuff on a stocking or mitten. How about a beard on a Santa? Let your imagination run wild.
