Make your own paper

Making paper by hand at home is a very simple process. It’s also a great way to use up your old receipts, scrap papers, and newspaper that you were about to throw in the recycling bin, and instead, create your own papers.

Handmade Paper

Paper maché

Paper maché is a technique where newspaper strips are dipped into a glue mixture and layered on top of an armature to create a basic sculpture.

Newspaper Clay

DIY Paper Clay is different from papier mache in that you create a clay-like mass, instead of using papier mache paste and strips of paper. You can make this paper clay using shredded paper or newspapers. You can then use this clay in your crafts, like you’d use play dough.
