    birch can also be used to make greeting cards. The beautiful tree skin is like a paper. I place a smaller piece on top of a piece of cardstock. Cardstock in khaki or brown is a good color. Then I stamp or use a pretty button or design to finish off the cardstock/birch paper layering. I always take birch paper from birch trees that have fallen and not the ones upright and growing.

    I have some bark i would like to use to make a small basket. Not sure it is birch, in any case it is very brittle, and I wonder if it should be soaked in water ? vinegar???? anything???

    thank you for your help.
