Any 'old timers' remember mulberry paper? I was doing a little organization in my scrap room this weekend and ran across a folder of mulberry paper!

Too funny! I remember having to have the perfect colors in my stash. In 2002, it was probably my fave thing to add to a lo. This is one from my DD1's baby album:

I've got a great little container full of strips of about ten different colors of this stuff - got it for 50 cents a few years ago at a scrapbook garage sale. I keep using it now and then (I love it with die-cuts - I layered some over some white paper when making a veil for a bride die-cut and the texture looked fabulous), but I still haven't really made a dent.

I don't think I ever used mine....was saving it for something 'special'.

I have a box of mulberry paper!

We need an "old time" challenge.

...mulberry paper, mailbox alphas, eyelets, and fiber

I too have a bunch of mulberry!!
Also for the old time challenge.. how about those "slide" embellishments! Don't know what they're called but look like an old "slide"- I used to cover them with matching pp to match my LO!

I never had any. Is it acid-free? I've always wondered that.

I know that the stuff I bought was acid free cause I bought it at a store that only carried that. There might be some out there tat isn't. I know they sell gorgeous handmade papers at stamp store that kinda look like it but they are not acid free.

That's it, exactly. Once I was given some purple stuff marked as Indian hand-made, but being purple, I couldn't try out my pH tester pen on it. I suspected it was not acid-free, and used it on cards just in case.

Even though I remember when it was all the rage (pretty much in every single copy of any original scrapbook magazine, i.e. Making Memories, Creating Keepsakes, etc.)...In the end, I think I literally only owned 1 piece total. It was cream colored with flowers pressed into it.

Michaels seems to keep mulberry paper alive & well in their free project sheets.

Also, this reminds me of when Tear Bears were a popular project to make, as well.

I only ever had a sheet or two - started scrapping at the tail end of that trend.

I was just thinking about it the other day though about how cool it would be for flowers.

RE: Old-timers challenge: try the hoarders challenge. Old-timers/hoarders? Think they are the same thing?

I have bought several pieces of washi paper over the years in my scrapbook store and then learned it is not acid free. Don't know what I will do with it. That stuff is $2 or $3 for an 8 1/2 x 11 so I hate to throw it out but I can't use it. I don't make cards and don't want to make cards so its just in my stash. Guess I'll put it into the pile that is going to raise money for breast cancer research.
