Friends of Dard Hunter

Well, after gathering many different pulps and doing a bit of recipe experimentation
I decided to use the 8 hr beaten abaca, 4 hr beaten linen and some pigmented gampi fibers to the mix for the Keepsake folder - nice crisp paper with rattle!
I was going to add daffodil, thistledown and fern but I had some problems
getting the paper to dry.

So after some paper engineering thoughts I came up with this - with a closure flap (that was able to go through my printer) that has some movability because I don't know how many pieces will be placed in the envelope. Although I am not expecting more than 10 or 12.
Up-date.......had to make 25 - lots more papermakers attending!
