Recycle used paper from your office, school or home by using the standard 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 standard 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 Paper Maker?
• A 15 x 11cm wooden mold and deckle set joined by a hinge.
• 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 Paper Maker kit is tidily packed into a 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 larger sheets of paper, check out The Big Paper Maker which makes 26cm x 16 cm sheets.
