How to make paper from recycled newspaper and magazines


2 Large bowls, water
old newspapers and magazines ripped into small pieces
fine screen mesh
Piece of old fabric

Put the small pieces of paper into the blender, cover with water and blend on low until it is a pulp.
Place the screen over a bowl, tip the pulp onto the screen and press the pulp to squeeze the water out of it, pressing it with the fabric to absorb the moisture.
Leave the paper to dry for a couple of days


You can add hot water to your paper to help it soak, or you can soak your paper for a couple of days prior to blending it into a pulp
