Step 1: Tear up the recycled paper Tear up several sheets of the recycled paper. Tear it until the pieces are postage-stamp sized, and then place them in the blender or food processor. Tip Recycled paper sources include tissue, computer paper, paper bags, and envelopes. Newsprint contains too much ink. Step 2: Blend the recycled paper Add water to the blender, and then blend the mixture for 30 seconds, or until you see paper fibers evenly dispersed in cloudy water. Step 3: Add the pulp to a basin Pour the pulp into a large basin or stopped sink. Continue blending and adding pulp until the sink or basin is half full. Step 4: Dip the mold and deckle into the pulp Place the deckle on top of the paper mold. Dip them into the pulp at a 45-degree angle and draw them toward you. Tip If you can't find a mold and deckle at a craft store, construct your own from two flat picture frames with a screen attached to one of them. Step 5: Remove the mold and deckle from the pulp Raise the mold and deckle to the surface a continuous motion, and then remove them from the pulp. Allow the water to drain away. Step 6: Transfer the paper to a flat surface Remove the deckle and transfer the layer of pulp to a flat surface covered by a damp cloth by placing the mold upside down on the surface, and then raising it up. Step 7: Dry the paper Let the paper dry. If you wish, you can iron the wet piece of handmade paper between two sheets of fabric. Did You Know? Did you know? In China, paper was invented in the year 105 by a Chinese eunuch.
