Repeat until covered, repositioning the stencil if necessary. Remove stencil and allow to dry.

Same-size wood frames with flat sides (2)
Junk mail or scrap paper
Large rubber bands
Plastic tub big enough for screens
Small plastic tub
Here is easy steps to make you own paper
STEP 1: Cut screen about 3cm larger than frame. Lay screen over the flat side of one frame. Wrap screen around frame edges and staple. Cut and additional screen piece to about the frame size. Save this piece for Step 4.
STEP 2: Place a handful of shredded junk mail or scrap paper into blender, cover with water, then let it soak for 15 minutes.
STEP 3: Blend until the paper mixture is a smooth consistency. This is the pulp. If using add-ins (see opposite page), mix them in now.
STEP 4: Stake the frames, placing deckle (the screen-less frame) on top with the screen side up on the bottom frame. Secure by wrapping a rubber band around each end. Fill the larger tub with water. Pour pulp inside the top frame, dispersing evenly. Lift frames out of the water and allow to drain.
STEP 5: Set the frames atop the smaller tub. Remove rubber bands and deckle. Place the extra cut screen piece over pulp area to keep sponge from pulling up pulp. Gently dab screen with a sponge to remove excess water.
STEP 6: Remove the loose screen and transfer the paper onto a felt sheet by flipping the frame over. Remove screen frame. Allow paper to dry.
