Mulberry paper, also known as kozo paper, is made from the inner bark of the mulberry tree. It provides a luxurious foundation for many art, craft and design projects. The paper feathers beautifully when hand torn and is a wonderful art paper for many projects including collage, painting, scrapbooking, note cards, lamp shades, wedding invitations, fish rubbings and many, many more. Mulberry paper is made in many different varieties including:
- Unryu Paper: Lightweight, translucent and showing embedded threads of bark.
- Kozo Paper: Heavyweight and highly textured.
- Printable Paper: Smooth, text weight and printer compatible.
- Marbled Momi Paper: Hand-marbled in exotic colors and texture.
- Mulberry Paper Rolls: Large dimension mulberry paper sold on rolls for large projects.
Christmas Tree Project
Forest Momi and Gold Metallic Mulberry Papers
For one tree you will need eight sheets of mulberry paper in five different sizes starting at 8″ and down to 4″ plus a tube from a paper towel roll. You can use alternating colors or use all of the same paper for each square size.
Roll each square into a cone shape and secure with hot glue.
Using the largest cone, hold the paper towel roll vertical and place the cone onto the roll approximately 4″ from the bottom. Glue each sheet around the cone and visually determine the placement of the next set of cones for the next size prior to gluing. Repeat with cone sizes and wrap the tip of the last cone over the paper towel roll. Glue a bow on the top of the roll to finish the tree and cover the opening.
