Re: gift wrap



"for all papers with a definite grain, the covering paper or cloth must be
used with the grain in the same direction as that in the board you are
covering."

I searched the archives and wasn't able to find a reference to finding the
grain of different boards. Obviously, some of the same tricks used to find
the grain direction in paper doesn't work with stiffer board. I work with a
lot of reclaimed scraps of rag mat board - any way to discern the grain
direction without having to take a small slice off of each one? Does grey
binders board have a grain direction as well?

Thanks in advance for your time -
Best wishes,
Roberta
