You know how sometimes a craft project sits neglected in a box or closet for weeks or months and other times you're hit with inspiration and you've got a completely new project started and completed in a day? Saturday (being one of those rare days when I had nothing I had to do) I was hit with the sudden notion to make paper. OK, maybe it wasn't so sudden - I had been making paper with the toddlers at work during this past week (for our Earth/Environment theme), remembered how much fun it was and really wanted to experiment with it, on my own, without a bunch of 1 & 2 year olds to supervise! So I got out my paper making stuff:
(The big screen is from a paper making kit I got years ago at Michaels or some such, the small screen I made from 2 IKEA frames, glass removed, and some window screen.)
Blended up some paper I rescued from the recycle bin and ended up with some lovely little sheets:
I think I might iron them out a bit, just to flatten everything out, but otherwise it's a craft project done in a day! I had another I need to make this right now moment on the weekend, more about that tomorrow!
