Paper embossing

Hi there! I saw this once posted on the Bookhou blog and I decided to give it a try.. 


Thick paper for the template. I used one watercolor paper tile by Strathmore
Exacto knife
A folding bone or something with a round tip. I used a knitting needle.
Paper. I used a sheet of pretty handmade paper for this project.

1. Draw your design on the thick piece of paper and cut it out using the Exacto knife.

2. Place your template on the back of your paper and hold it against a window. The light will help you see the design. Use your folding bone or a knitting needle and rub the areas that you cut out from your template.

I hope you like the result. I think it turned out pretty good :)
