We have been gathering materials to make recycled paper: deckle, dried flower embellishments, paper to recycle, and how-to books full of crafty paper-making inspiration.
This weeks stash of papermaking books from the library:
– Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking: Make Your Own Recycled Paper from Newspapers & Magazines, Can & Bottle Labels, Disgarded Gift Wrap, Old Phone Books, Junk Mail, Comic Books, and More by Arnold E. Grummer (shown in the above photos)
– The Papermaker’s Companion: The Ultimate Guide to Making and Using Handmade Paper by Helen Hiebert (featured in the photos below)
– Beginner’s Guide to Papermaking by Heidi Reimer-Epp and Mary Reimer
We even have a second-hand, dedicated blender just for craft projects.
Let the recycled papermaking projects begin!
