"Making your very own paper is so much fun, and the creative possibilities are endless. I make a lot of my own paper using the Arnold Greummer method by recycling a lot of used papers, envelopes, and even gift wrapping into beautiful unique new sheets of paper. One of the projects I enjoy making with my papers are ornaments and flowers. Here I combine both in this Poinsettia Flower Christmas Ornament. Making your own paper is very satisfying, and making your own ornaments is very fun."

Instructions

  1. To begin make several sheets of handmade paper in the Arnold Grummer Paper Making Method using the Arno;ld Grummer Paper Making system.  To make these sheets I used recycled wrapping papers, some tinsel, and some envelopes.

  2. To make the petals and centre of the flower a steel metal die was used to speed up the process.

  3. Following the cutting of the flower parts, cut a big circle out of some cardboard.

  4. Add some glue to the circle.  Begin laying the larger petals around the circle.  For the next layer add some more glue and repeat.  The centre is made by layering two different coloured enters over one another.  The stamens are represented with some clear dimensional glue and glass beads.

  5. Finally to use this poinsettia as a tree ornament, glue to the back of a large clothes pin.

This is very pretty and very tempting for me to make. But you should know that the Grummer kits are very expensive. The cheapest one I found to use to show me how to make this paper was $40. They go as high as $120. I am afraid my budget just can't handle that.

This is absolutely beautiful. I can't believe it's made from mostly paper! I would love to make a dozen of these and sprinkle them around the table

This is so pretty.
