How did we get here?


At Wooden Deckle our mission is to get you up and running at making paper. Our kits enable you to recycle paper to make handmade paper in a variety of sizes, for a variety of purposes. We specialize in small and sturdy mold and deckles for practical everyday paper making. By shredding used printer paper, wrapping paper, sheet music, greeting cards, etc., and processing them in a kitchen blender,  new life is given to what was once destined to be thrown away. Finding a second use for something instead of throwing it away is good for our earth, and honors the One who made it.

Elizabeth W began making paper in 2003 as a surface for her botanical art collages, and soon there were numerous inquiries from people who wanted handmade paper for their own creative endeavors.  Elizabeth likes making paper, but not that much paper, thus, a simple, practical paper making kit was born. 

Wooden Deckle is located in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin.  The frames for our mold and deckles are handcrafted in the U.S.A.  Our boxes are folded and the labels for our paper making kits and all of its components are applied by hardworking individuals at VIP Services. We couldn't manage with out them.
