Made some last night and made them into a notebook using a grocery bag cover from another 'ible. When you first dip the papers, they don't look like much, but after they dry they seem to 'develop' and really look cool. Just love the effect. Will be making a lot more of this for gifts! Thanks for the awesome 'ible.
