The BIG Paper Maker. An Easy Way to Recycle Paper at Home by Handmaking Paper.
Recycle used paper from your office, school or home by using the BIG Paper Maker to make lovely handmade paper. It is easy. With experimentation, you can make thick paper for cards and backing, paper with flowers, leaves or confetti mixed into it as decorative sheets or textural paper for journals and notebooks.
The BIG Paper Maker comes with everything you need to make paper except a blender. If you don't have a blender, a mortar and pestle or a large plastic bottle into which the shredded paper is shaken and not stirred will help in making pulp. :)
What's in The BIG Paper Maker?
• A 20 x 30 cm wooden mold and deckle set.
• Simple instructions with drawings that shows you how to make paper. The instruction sheet also has creative ideas for making different kinds of handmade paper, with varied textures, colours and the beautiful fun things you can add to it.
• Couching sheets
• A biodegradable cellulose sponge
• A pair of strong, flat pressing boards.
The BIG Paper Maker kit is tidily packed into a cloth bag upcycled from dead stock fabric, used tablecloths or duvet covers. Since we're recycling fabric to make the bags, your paper maker may not come with the bag shown in the photo. But we'll make sure that the fabric is either a gingham or a stripe.
If you'd like to make card-sized sheets of paper, check out The Paper Maker which makes 15cm x 11cm sheets.
