Vellum is a transparent paper that comes in colored or printed sheets. Vellum can be used for scrapbooking, card crafting, envelope construction and other paper crafts.
Vellum paper is available in a variety of thicknesses and colors. A thin vellum paper can be used as a transparent sheath over printed material. One common use is printing text on the vellum paper with a printer and then layering it over a printed photograph so the photo shows through the haze of the vellum paper. Vellum paper makes invitations, crafts and scrapbook pages look classy and different. The sheer paper and layering effects give a new dimension to most art projects. Vellum paper is generally used as a top layer in craft projects.
It is important to have a glue or adhesive that will also be transparent when adhering vellum to itself or to a project. Vellum Tape is recommended for use with vellum papers.
