Simple rules
by: Lesliediana

From my bookbinding days I have a deckle edge ruler, but I really like your method because of the combo of dye and a ruler everyone will have in their supplies. Thanks for the tip.

Thank-you for sharing this tip, I had been told of using water for a soft tear but using coffee is a great tip.

Thank you for this. I had not thought of using coffee. This is so much easier than using water then inking the edges too!

Nice

I like the balance between a rough edge and one that is wildly uneven! One more reason to love my cork-backed metal ruler. Thank you for posting.
