All that aside, making paper (at least this kind) was extremely easy, not to mention fulfilling and fun.
- Half a gallon to whole gallon plastic baggie filled with one square inch pieces of newspaper. Fill baggie with water and allow to sit overnight.
- A blender - not your best for sure! I got mine at Wal-Mart for about $15. You might can find one at a thrift store.
- Screens - Using window screen replacement material cut rectangles or squares in adequate size for your needs. Tape edges with duct tape to prevent tears, frays, or cuts to your fingers. The frames I used were about 6.5 x 7.5 inches.
- Paper towels - you will need an entire roll!
- Styrofoam plates
- Various cookie cutters (If you're wanting sheets, try the large rectangular cookie cutters used to make ginger bread houses)
- Embellishments: flower seeds, colored raffia paper, etc.
