Recycling paper tutorial

I wrote on my handmade blog a simple paper make tutorial which I put together with my 6 yr old son who took the photographs and did some of the shredding.

The process is simple and once you’ve done the moulding, you have a choice of pressing your paper dry, couching or to leave it on your mould to dry. You can also use the rolling pin to make your paper smooth.

Anyway, check the links below for the materials and instructions. I ‘ve added several other papermaking instructions for you to choose from. I hope you enjoy this simple activity.
