Your artwork couldn't be more unique when you use handmade paper. These packs are made by the artist Susan Barton-Tait. Her work "is multidisciplinary, incorporating sociopolitical ideas that respond to environmental issues, memories attached to objects, women’s issues, and the fragility of family dynamics" working "with basic/minimalistic materials through a formal structure that stimulates viewer reaction."

 

One of those "basic materials" is paper that she often uses in her sculptures and other art work.

"Hand papermaking is a magical process where wet cellulose fibres bind together naturally when pressed together to form a sheet of paper. Each sheet of handmade paper is individually formed by dipping a rigid screen (mould) into a slurry of beaten cellulose fibres, then pressed and dried. Hand papermaking benefits the environment by using eco-friendly organic materials: cotton, hemp, abaca, flax ,other cellulose fibres and recycled paper to create a unique artisanal product."
