Make Recycled Paper

Step 3 of 9: Create paper-making molds

Secure a piece of screen in an embroidery hoop by sandwiching it between the two hoops and tightening the screw. Trim the screen so about an inch hangs over the edge of the hoop. This is your paper-making mold. You will need one mold for each piece of recycled paper you want to make.
