This is not a traditional parchment craft book although some of the techniques and equipment used are the same. Janet Wilson explains in the introduction that all the cards are made using Fiskars ‘Mini Shapeboss’. This is a stencilling system which she uses to show how to emboss and perforate within.
Unfortunately if you haven’t got the Mini Shapeboss you would have to buy it to proceed with the projects in this book. The Mini Shapeboss although good in itself is not used in parchment craft but would be useful in stencilling projects.
