Your papers are very very pretty! In high school i took a crafts class and one of the things we made was paper. To make the paper flat after we got it out of the mold and on to felt we would press the paper against a window,and peel it off of the felt. it takes a little getting used to since you have to make sure the paper is not too wet.  the paper would stick to the window to dry that way (so the paper ended up as flat as the window).

Interesting... did that mess up the window at all afterward? Did it leave any weird stains or anything?

It never messed up the window, usually the window just needed to be cleaned afterwards. Edit: though i would not try this if you use any sort of glue in your paper, that could be hard to clean off windows.

do any of you guys sell the recycled paper that you make? i've been holding off on buying any, since i haven't been able to find any indie makers to buy from.

I love making recycled paper out of my junk mail too!

I recently bought a paper shredder and used blender to help with the whole process... (I was tearing by hand before!!!!!)

Great Work!

I still need to get started on his- i've been meaning to get around to this for a while.

Great idea about putting it on the window... does it fall off when it dries? I live in Arizona, so I'm thinking if I used this technique, my paper would be dry in about five seconds after touching the window Smiley

If you're joking about the heat, I might not be so sure. Even when ironing paper to help it dry, I usually just heat it up and still have to wait for it to dry, or at least cool down so it won't catch fire with another pass of the iron.

i'm not joking about the heat. we get up to 110 or more during the summer, so window and metal become like branding irons
