Beeswax Wraps, Take Two

So I didn’t like my first beeswax wraps. They didn’t hold their shape, and weren’t flexible enough. So I decided to try again. The result was pretty good, although slightly discolored.

One of my favorite places was the Folger Shakespeare Library.… Continue Reading “Shakespeare Letterpress Cards”

Date Night For Nerds
