|You can find specialty paper in stationery,|
art, and craft stores, with flowers and
leaves embedded right in the fibers.
Let the paper you choose appeal to more senses than just your sight by choosing an interesting texture, and add your own favorite perfume--lightly--if the paper does not have its own aroma.
Don't let an exotic surface scare you from writing. You may have to stick with a ballpoint pen or try out a paint pen, to write on very soft or absorbent paper surfaces. If you love a paper that is really hard to write on, attach a smaller piece of white paper, or translucent vellum, for the actual handwritten message.
You can find more suggestions in my books, about choosing paper, pens, and words: The Art of the Handwritten Note and The Art of the Personal Letter, both from Random House. margaretshepherd.com
