The third book has been written with the information gained from feedback on books 1 and 2, they have designed these patterns to be made with the minimum of tools. You will only need embossing tools and a few perforating tools as there is very little gridwork involved.

The patterns in this book are for all abilities both beginners and experienced parchers will find something to suit them. There is a section at the front describing the tools and equipment you will need, and then there are three pages of quick guides to tracing, embossing, cutting, working on a grid etc.

There are quite a few pages of ideas for completed projects but it is very much a book of borders and decorative edges and embellishments, so you choose your own centres whether a photo, drawing or parchment craft work.  All the patterns have to be enlarged by 140% on a photocopier to obtain their true size, but you can alter this to suit your requirements.  Altogether this is a fabulous book that has endless opportunities to make your own parchment craft projects really special and unique. 116 pages.
