I used an aqua painter to separate the mulberry paper, by getting it slightly wet it separates with ripping and looks great. It also drys pretty quickly.
I punched holes down the side and then looped the cord through. Be sure if you try this that you loop it loosely until you open the card so you know it will open all the way and then tighten as needed. It was a pain to try to loosen when I realized that I couldn't hardly open the card. I just knotted the cord a couple of times before snipping so it couldn't unlace itself.
