Comments about Shizen Handmade Paper by the Pound:
I bought this to be endpages or covers on hand bound books. I don't feel like this is a very good deal. There are several chistmas designs. All of the designs have a acrylic or vinyl feeling metallic color that I really don't like and there is glitter everywhere. I want to repeat that there is glitter everywhere! Also three of the sheets of paper are cut or torn. Many of the pages with dots on them have scratches on the designs that make them look ugly and worn. I think to use most of the pages I will glue them design side down.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this assortment
from Mount Vernon, WA
I really liked the patterns and quality of this hand made type paper, however I wish I would have known that there were holiday patterns in the selection. I might not have purchased if for my class as it was not appropriate for our project to have Christmas stockings and trees.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The paper is thick and grest for bookmaking i like that its normal sized 8×11 . although when i got it i was suprised a snall stack of about 25 papers was one pound but i weighed it and it was.the paper is really beautiful but it has many duplicates there are about 10 different designs and the rest are duplicates also half the designs have sparkles on them and sparkles make a mess. Also theres a christmas themed paper which i am never going to use bc its not my holiday
Got 2 packs and they have different papers. Good for using with a group as tastes vary. Will use with a group for book making.

A creative challenge, for sure
from Scarborough, ME
The quality of the paper itself is excellent! Most of the colors and designs, unfortunately, are really ugly. Maybe two or three designs are actually usable for my purposes. Package didn't include any of the beautiful sample papers shown in the listing photo. I knew it would be random, but I really wasn't expecting Christmas themes at all! This was probably was just a way of repackaging and unloading the designs they couldn't sell. Not sure how I'll be able to use them. It'll take some heavy creative thinking to get my money's worth out of this purchase. Word of caution to potential buyers- it's a huge gamble. What you'll get is VERY random, and don't expect to get what you see in the photo online. Reading the other reviews, I see that some people are very happy with what they got... so good luck if you take a chance on this!

Good paper at a decent price
I'm using this paper in some leather-bound journals I'm making. The paper has a good feel to it, accepts dry media well, and you'd have trouble beating the price.
Great selection of papers!
from North Newton, KS
I always look forward to this assortment of interesting papers for students in my book arts classes.
Beautiful Paper, wish you could choose a style
By Carter Gal
I first bought a 1/2 pound assorted package of these and I was unsure at first because they are very wild on some of the designs. I use these for scrapbooking and I have become to love them and use them very frequently. I then bought two pounds of the smaller size 8x11 because I loved the paper so much. My only complaint is that it comes with some papers that I would simply consider construction paper. If they had a design on them I would have no complaints and most of the paper is very beautiful, There is a repetition with poka dots and lines but it includes sparkles, velvet prints, regular screen printing designs even some marble looking paper that was my favorite. All in all I love this paper and will buy more when I am running low.
Beautiful paper and a nice weight. Feels more like a cotton rag paper. Great for collage. Odd odor however.
