I have been asked about this before and I think the idea is cool. I am not sure if there is a period precedence for it but...what odds. People have done scrolls on great lumps of stone.. so.... I think it would be cool to do. I think the draw backs woudl be time contraints for scrolls that are being awarded in current, but maybe to try out on a backlogged scroll or that a special promisory was done for teh court and the real 'scroll' goes out afterwards... please remember about the king and queen's signature....but I think it would be delightful to see.
...you reminded me on a post of Lady Laren - maybe the best solution would be to embroider a picture and than to apply it (however it is possible) to a paper and there the calligraphy and the signatures can be done afterwards...:D(maybe a perfect and very special scroll for someone who is very keen on embroidery)
I also think that with their TRMs permission you coudl get a facsimile of their signatures to embroider. Either way I am sure that something along these lines woudl be quite stunning and a treasure for the recipient.
I think it would make a lot of fun to make such a scroll :)
I've made an embroidered scroll for the Order of the Golden Ribbon http://alt.zoomin.se/P137490 (Nordmark Order for Service) In general I've seen a few other crafts used ofr especially Viking personas, like an drinking horn or even a runestone. There was even a scroll made in marzipan.. http://www.sca.org.au/lochac/artsci/callig.html
to make such a 'scroll' for the Order of the Golden Ribbon is a very good idea :D...and the marzipan scroll - I am speechless :D
