I taught Sarah how to tear Mulberry paper and she loves it! This are photo examples of how to do it. First, you wet the edges of the paper, we used a Q-tip. Then, you gently tear away from the center of the paper and it forms a nice torn edge. She decided to only do 2 side of her paper, I have see this done with all 4 sides of the paper torn. Either way makes a nice effect as a photo mat.
