I was in the library and found an old book on paper crafts. In it showed some amazing work with vellum paper. With further searching; I came up with a book dedicated to Vellum paper crafts.
This is a new paper craft for me.
Parchment Craft, is also known as Pergamano, it is the art of embellishing and decorating parchment paper (or vellum paper) through the use of different techniques such as: embossing, perforating, stippling, cutting and coloring.
I choose translucent vellum paper to work with.
I would like to share my instructables and I believe will cover most of the techniques that could be used for other ellum projects.
