Hopefully there are many of you out there who enjoy parchment craft as much as I do. Some people call it Pergamano, which is actually the name of one of the manufacturers of tools, grids, stamps and paper with which to do the parchment craft, and not the name of the craft itself. Whatever you wish to call it, it would be great if we could share thoughts, ideas, and projects, as well as seek and offer advice on how to do this fantastic craft.

I'll start the ball rolling by showing you some of the projects I've done over the years:

This one was a parchment crib which forms the lid of an oval box which I made to hold a little silver bracelet for the new baby of a colleague. The box is the darker pink base you can just see. Apart from the ribbon threaded round the outside of the top of the crib, the ruffled ribbon and bow inside the crib and the net under the "skirts" of the crib, the whole thing, including the blanket, was made with parchment.

This is one I did for a colleague's parents' Ruby Wedding Anniversary.
