Creating handmade paper from repurposed, recycled and natural materials is easy and eco-friendly! With over 25 gorgeous recipes and great tips, even beginners will soon be on their way to mastering the techniques. Embed grass clippings into recycled white pulp for a refined Asian look, or grind in a bit of coffee for a soft brown colour and a subtle granulated texture. Vibrant marigold petals add a splash of colour to cotton pulp, but it doesn't stop there. Crafters will love the fabulous ideas for showing off their handiwork, including a greeting card, gift wrap and tags, a molded decorative bowl and frame-able art.
