How to Make Paper Towel Handmade Paper


Earth-friendly crafts don't have to look like, well, trash. Instead, find out how to make Paper Towel Handmade Paper from Heidi Borchers and use it to create your own cards, scrapbook pages and more. You'll never need to purchase paper again once you've tried out this craft.

This project may seem complicated but it's so easy. Begin by tearing the plies apart, ripping them up and and placing the pieces in a blender. Use paint, food coloring or even construction paper scraps to create the appropriate color for your handmade paper. Pour the mixture into a water-filled container, Create your own mold by stapling a screen to an old wooden frame. Place your mold into the water and when you take it out, place the piece on a towel. Remove any excess water using a sponge and let the piece dry for at least a couple of hours. Create your own greetings, journals and more using your own handmade paper! No one will believe it was made out of scraps and paper towels.
