Transform boring sheets of paper into simple and fun craft projects.
You Will Need
- Scrap paper
- A bucket
- A blender
- A window screen
- A 4-inch deep pan
- An iron
Soak the paper
Tear the scrap paper into pieces and soak in a bucket of warm water for 30 to 45 minutes.
Grind the paper
Take the paper from the bucket and grind it in the blender until it takes on a mushy, porridge-like consistency.
Cut and insert screen
Cut the screen to fit the pan. Overlap the sides for easy removal later. Put the screen in the pan.
Add an inch of water to the pan.
Spread the paper mush evenly over the screen in the pan, one-eighth inch deep.
Lift the edges of the screen, pulling the mush out of the water. Allow the water to drain.
Prepare to iron
Place the screen on a dishtowel. Fold the towel over the mush mixture.
Iron the mush
Iron over the dish cloth with your iron on high. This presses the water from the mush and makes for faster dry time.
Allow 24 hours to dry
After 24 hours, your paper is ready!
