Parchment craft is a very fascinating and creative art which is based on working with translucent parchment paper, embossing tools and perforating tools.. We use the embossing tools for tracing, creating small flowers and laces in decorative painting. Because of the unique qualities of parchment paper, you can dry emboss, perforate and even apply different colour medium on it.

There are many projects which you can create :

Like all other forms of art, there are many other possibilities, the only limit is our own imagination!

As I mentioned earlier, parchment paper is one of the basic materials you need to start with parchment craft. Besides grey translucent parchment paper, there are also various kinds of coloured parchment paper and vellum. Vellum is thinner than ordinary parchment paper and has different coloured prints.
