From where my passion for paper started………………

My passion for paper started wen I started working as a volunteer designer with a handicapped n blind girls institute.amazingly these girls r really talented.i started with designing envelopes.the blind cud’nt do muchL..but girls with partial vision did grt jobs.i was careful to keep my designing simple.
Most of the paper we used was handmade,got the envelopes done from a local guy….n then started dressing them!popularly they r called’lifaafa’…or ‘cover’ to b given away on weddings,birthdays n any small or big occasion.
