Today I am working on a document that came to me in four pieces (well, really more than four, but they were the largest!) Here is what it looked like after I gave it a gentle bath. There were small shards of paper that needed to be matched back up and secured back together.
Here is what it looks like now that it has many tissue mends and pieces returned to their proper place! Still a few more mends to make but it’s getting close to being finished.
In the lower corner of this diploma, it has the words “Please Hang this up.” 🙂 I guess they didn’t want the recipient to just shove it in a drawer – but maybe they would never guess that it would be receiving such care and being pieced back together after many years.
