I have never posted here before but I did want to share a couple of my first handmade paper trials. I sold both and the recipients LOVED them. Enjoy!

Beautiful, I hope to make some paper something soon. What was your technique of doing it, what did you use?

There are several crafts you can do with paper shredder shreds, use it to stuff your creations or for paper dolls...

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.
