During my first trials I hot glued a piece of window screen to a picture frame. blended a shredded paper with water and added a tiny drop of finger paint. Add about 1 inches of water to sink and placed the frame in the water. I poured the pulp (paper mix) into the frame slowly making sure to get it even in the frame and filling in all for the whole. Then I removed the frame from the water and vigorously sponged as much water out of the paper as possible. then I took a hair dryer on a low setting and blow the screen side of the frame to loosen that paper from the screen. Then very carefully I removed the paper from the frame and sponged again. Then I used a very thin bed sheet (my ironing cloth) to iron the paper flat and remove more water. then I set the paper on my dryer to dry.
I added flower seed to both of these papers. One in the blending process and also added seeds before removing the paper from the water. There are so many different ways to make paper and ton of tuts on the net. I recommend www.arnoldgrummer.com
they have all kinds of tuts for different kinds of projects. I also like to make crafts without buying anything to I tend to improvise with what I have.
