HOW TO : Make Paper

I finally did it - made the paper leap when Rachel came over for a crafty retreat. You can find documentation of my Adventure here.*

I have big plans for the outcome, but you'll have to wait and see...

*I should warn you, before you attempt this yourself, that now I look at everything differently. I've been thinking of stealing flower petals, and I have been stealing the recycling.


  1. Ali, I loveit! have been wanting to try it. thanks for the great tut!

  2. UPDATE : I finally printed on the paper with the letterpress, and it went great. It's thick and soft. I would probably not make a folding card, but I have been thinking of making an A2 sized deckle so all the sides are feathery.
    Here's what I printed:

    Also, I did another batch with mainly white paper and aqua tissue and wildflower seeds. I'm not sure what I'm going to print on it yet, but we'll see.


Thank for the help!
