"Trash-To-Treasure Papermaking", the ultimate guide for crafty recyclers, is every family's answer to the problem of too much paper waste. With just a blender, paper scraps, and water, people of all ages will discover the fun of whipping up sheets of unique handmade paper in a variety of shapes, colours, textures, and sizes. From cards, invitations, and little bound books to paper bowls, wreaths, and ornaments, this book features dozens of creative projects for using the newly made paper. Author and master papermaker Arnold Grummer has devoted his 30-year career to developing the simplest method for making recycled paper. It is accessible even for preschoolers but fun and inventive enough to challenge crafters of any age. "Trash-To-Treasure Papermaking" features Arnold's innovative techniques, shown in step-by-step colour photographs. A simple mould can be made from tin cans, milk jugs, or juice cartons; built from wood scraps; or purchased inexpensively. Add an old blender and start exploring the infinite possibilities of recycled paper. Before and after photos shows the magical transformations of each type of waste paper into its own distinctive sheet of new paper.
