Trash to Treasure Papermaking by Arnold Grummer will guide you on how to make your very own recycled paper. It really isn't that hard to do and with common items you can recycle your own paper in no time!

Trash to Treasure Papermaking is all about making your own custom made recycled paper. This book teaches you which kind of paper is best to use, how to make the pulp and then turn it into paper that you can reuse.

It might seem like it would be an intimidating thing to try for yourself, but it really isn't that hard. I do suggest using an old or very cheap blender for the pulp though because you really don't want to use it for your food or smoothies after making paper pulp in it.

The different ideas for what you can do with the paper like using napkins for patterns and also tissue is a fun idea. I personally really liked making the paper and putting in leaves and dried flowers in it - so pretty!

Overall, I found this book to be a really fantastic guide for making paper out of "trash." I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to try this project too.

Format: Paperback
In Storey's classic style, Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking is very comprehensive in terms of it's subject matter. It starts out telling about the nature and history of paper (defined as tiny fibers that are bonded together), as well as common terms associated with it. Mr. Grummer also says that "all and any paper can be recycled, it it can't be recycled it isn't paper". Based on that thought, you can see how any paper product can be re-purposed into a new paper product, which will be more useful and to your liking. There were many possibilities listed of what you can recycle, some of which surprised me: fast food wrappers, junk mail, labels on cans, old phone books, gift wrap and more.

The author goes over the basic supplies of what you need, including a blender and a screen or even just a tin can for the simplest method of paper making. Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking is filled with photos and how-to instructions for every step. In addition, there are many extras, like how to add borders, paint and glitter to embellish your handmade paper. With your newly made paper, there are seemingly endless ideas of how you can turn it into fun and useful items. Making bookmarks, cards, garlands, wreaths, labels and magnets are just a few of the suggestions detailed in Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking.

I really enjoyed the information about paper casting to turn your recycled paper into items like bowls, baskets or masks. And you can use molds of all types to make really interesting paper projects for things like decorations and gifts. I loved that idea because I collect lots of fun cookie and candy making molds, and now I have a new way that I can use them!

Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking is such an excellent resource for learning how to recycle and reuse paper.

I especially like the instructions for building your own paper press and your own pour hand mold. If you need a book on paper making - this is the one.

I am considering making paper. I have used Trash to Treasure projects in the past and enjoyed the process. I have learned new
words and techniques as well as a whole host of other things whether I pursue making paper or not. The book arrived promptly and in excellent shape.
