My niece and I made some recycled crayons and we were left with a BUNCH of papers from the crayons, so I decided to make paper out of them!



The paper didn't turn out to be the prettiest color, but it looks neat close up:

This is amazing.  I love the colors.  I have been wanting to try to make my own paper.  Now I really know I have to.

They're not earrings, lol, they're really big crayons- about the size of my palm.  To make the crayons you just melt crayon pieces in a metal tin in the oven.

That's cool!  I never thought of crayon paper.  I shred my bills and use the clear filmy stuff covering the address.
