answers to paper questions

So this is what we truth this was our first time.

So the girls and I cleaned up the house on Saturday morning and we collected all the extra pieces of drawing paper that was discarded, receipts, scraps left over from making the birthday invites...all white paper.

And then we added flowers and essential oils.

the only extra color was the beeswax crayon left on the paper from drawing.

It did turn out really nice and white.

Here is a U tube I found on how to make paper.

My frame I made from a pot holder loop kit and some mesh fabric I had hanging round. It just safety pinned it to on the back so it wasn't permanent.

Great! I tried making paper several years ago, but it didn't turn out too well. Thanks for the inspiration to try again!

I made paper with peach skins in it once, it smelled wonderful!
