Make Recycled Paper

Step 9 of 9: Try this

Key Terms Defined

A pulpy mixture of paper pieces and water

Make several slurries using different colors of paper. What happens when you mix two or more colors of paper together? You can also add items to the slurry, such as dried flowers, glitter, or pictures cut out from newspapers. Make your own frame for the paper-making mold by cutting out cardboard or a sturdy paper plate. Use frames in different shapes and sizes to make different shapes of recycled paper.
