To create your paper base, use only non-waxy, non-glossy junk mail and paper scraps. Just follow these easy downloadable instructions for Hand Pressed Paper to get started.

Investing in a paper shredder is a smart way to maintain the privacy of all household documents. It also allows you some recyclable materials to be used for other purposes around the home. Shred pieces of junk mail in your garage and use as packing assurance for mailing gifts. Use shreds to start a fire in your fireplace or fire pit. Add to your compost pile to be used as filler in your mulch. Donate it to your local animal shelter for use in pet bedding, cages and liter boxes.
