- Old bowl
- Old blender
- 3 cups HOT water
- Wire for the frame *I used an old wire hanger
- 1 cup of Shredded paper (recycled or not)
- old panty hose
- Anything extra you might want to add (buffalo snow is the purple bag) like gold specs, threads, glitter, etc
Start by making the frame with the old hanger and pantyhose. I just bent mine into a square and slipped the pantyhose over it. It was a little tight this way but it worked perfect.
Now get ready to mix it up! Pour the 1 cup of shredded paper and 3 cups of HOT water into the bowl
Once it has set enough to soften, pour into a blender. I pureed it. To the point where it was pure liquid. This step is up to you how much you want it blended.
Place frame on top of the sink, or a baking dish or tupperware type container....anything to catch the water that will filter through. I did the storage container and it was the perfect size to rest the frame on top of so that I can press the water out of the pulp. I used my hands and a towel.
Then, tada! Home Made Paper!!Pin It
