I have always wanted to learn how to make my own paper, so I will definitely need to give this project a try.

Everyone needs to watch this video. This is one of the greatest things I have seen. Make paper out of old newsprint or magazines. I love it. This video is a great educational tool to show children and adults how to make their own decorated and colorful paper. This would make a cool gift to give someone as writing paper. Thanks for a great tutorial. Is it better to iron or let it dry over night? Does it make any difference?
