That's right, last year I saved most of the gift wrapping and extras that came through our house and I even got to save some from our visits to family! So, by removing all pieces of sticky tapes, and staples I gathered a lot of materials. I filled a big storage tub with shiny papers, ribbons, cards and so much more. I still have a lot left in that bin by the way. The fun came when I started ripping and shredding my stash to create the pulp to make my new creations which I then posted on this blog throughout the year.
#1. Gather the stash of materials:
#2. Sort and remove pieces of tape, staples, and anything that cannot be used in the pulp making process without causing damage to your blender.
#3. Rip, tear, cut, shred the materials.
#5. Continue making the paper following the Arnold Grummer Paper Making method. Click here for link to video.
#6. Enjoy your new papers.
#7. Create something.
I hope that you all have a safe and joyous season, may you have a Happy New Year too! Remember to recycle and create. For other ideas and projects please come visit me at my blog: http://annmakes.blogspot.com.
