Today I want to share with you a quick video showing my first go at paper making! I am happy to report that it is easy and fun! Before I tried this, I read the Trash to Treasure Book from cover to cover! This is a valuable resource and will be used whenever I get my paper making supplies out.
The supplies you will need are:
Trash to Treasure Papermaking Book
Any of the Arnold Grummer Paper Making Kits
Recycled paper including junk mail, envelopes, fliers, can labels, etc.
If you want to make the paper acid free, you will need to add calcium carbonate.
EK Success Scallop Circle Punch
It is a tradition for my sisters and I to get a photo with my mom every time we are together. We took this one a few weeks ago and I anted to get it scrapped. Once my paper was dry, I punched out the scallop circles which I like to use for flowers. I did fold and bend them a bit and inked the edges before using them on my layout.
Here is a closer look:
I enjoyed using my own paper to make these embellishments. The nice part is, I can even recycle any scraps into something new!!
Thank you so much for joining me. Please visit the Arnold Gummer website to shop and for project ideas and inspiration.
