Here's another recycled paper pulp recipe equation for you. 

Colorful fibers added to white recycled paper pulp equals colorful, interesting paper. 

I have an aunt who lives in an assisted living apartment, and recently she gifted me a large bag of assorted yarn and embroidery floss.  To thank her, I am making bookmarks for her and her knitting friends who donated their odds and ends. 

What can you reuse today? 
Happy papermaking!

RECIPE NOTES:

2 Cups of white recycled paper pulp
10 or so green tea bags (generic is perfect)

Place pulp in a bowl with tea bags.  Cover with hot water and allow to steep for several hours.  Remove tea bags, but break open one or two and mix in loose tea.

Try this recipe with non-white recycled paper pulp as well.

Such a lovely rustic looking paper!  I use this handmade paper for everything - journal covers, business cards, note cards, bookmarks, hang tags, botanical art pieces. 

Happy papermaking!

Got boundless energy?   Got creativity?
Amanda Moss Edwards does. 

Every time I turn around (and glance at Instagram) Amanda has posted yet another picture of her gorgeous earrings, and they just happen to be on the handmade paper earring cards she makes with our quadruple mold and deckle.   Look how she sews right across the top of her display cards and attaches her shop name, and tag line.  Brilliant branding!  Such creativity.
