At the last Phoenix DIY meeting, Lisa Jacobs ran a paper making workshop. We learned how to use recycled office paper as the base for art papers, to which we added colored napkins for pigment and dried flowers, glitter, conductive thread, and many others as “inclusions,” the things that jazz up the paper inside and out. With some simple supplies, this is a really easy, fun, and kid friendly project. Thanks to Conspire Phoenix for hosting!

    Can I somehow find written instructions for this technique. I have a desktop in an inconveinent location for papermaking.

    Coincidentally, I just posted about an instructable which uses pretty much the same method:
