Recycled Newspaper Gift Tags: An Easy Papermaking DIY Project

BlogHer Original Post

Every time my father-in-law comes to visit, he leaves stacks of newspapers behind. He does the crossword, chuckles at the comics, and then he tosses the paper aside. After this weekend’s visit, I decided to get crafty with the kids and his newspaper. I have always wanted to try making paper, but somehow it seemed really daunting. I was wrong; it is really easy. So easy, in fact, that I could make sheets and sheets of it after every visit. Maybe I will.
