This was a project I have been thinking about doing for a while now. It is nothing special or uncommon, I have just never gotten around to it until now. I was actually surprised at how easy it was.
The largest hassle seems to be finding space to dry all the newly made paper. I do not really have a use for all the paper but I am sure I can give it away or figure something out.
I have been experimenting with making paper that includes flower, cardboard, and even dryer lint. Everything seems to work so far within reason.
I collected scrap paper through out the week. This included pretty much anything made from paper or light card stock. Junk mail, scrap cuttings from my National Geographic art, mishaps from drawings, recipes from the market, old food labels or containers and even a phone book (why do they keep bringing me those?)
