Set aside several hours for this. It does take a while and make a big mess (if you are like me and not careful), but it is very fun and worth all the effort it takes. :D
First: You need to gather your supplies. You can use pretty much use any scrap paper you have lying around the house. (This is a good way to recycle.) I used the paper that was in my shredder and some special colored papers that were in my scrap stash.You also need a blender/food processor. A blender does work better because it can be filled with more liquid, but I couldn't find mine so I used my mom's food processor.
****I found out after that you really shouldn't use it for food after you use it for paper so I kinda ruined my mom's food processor. (Sorry mom)!! She said it was okay though because she wanted a new one anyway. ha ha****
You need a bucket that is bigger than the frames you will be making. You have to make sure that you have room for your hands to fit in the bucket (you will see what I mean in a second).
Here is the thing you will need to catch the paper "pulp" you will be making. (I'm sorry I don't know what it is called). My dad made this one for me. It is just two "frames" made out of wood. One with a screen stapled to it and one with no screen.
You will also need lots of towels to dry your paper out on. Sponges might help too.
When you have gathered all of your supplies then you are ready to get started.
Get a second bucket. One big enough to soak all of your paper scraps in. Your paper scraps should be ripped (not cut-it makes the fibers weaker) into 1X1 inch squares or smaller. Any bigger and it might mess up the blender's motor. The ripped scraps should be soaked for an hour or longer. The longer they are soaked the easier it is on the blender's motor. Also, the thicker the paper, the longer it has to soak.
Pour the pulp into your big bucket. Repeat this process until your bucket is about 1/2 to 3/4 full. You don't want it to be too full because it will overflow when you place the frame in there.
Once on top of the towel (I am using my Sham-wow), remove the top frame (the one with no screen). Flip the other side of the towel on top of the paper pulp and press until as much water comes out as you can get.
When I was completely finished making my paper for the day, I slowly and very carefully put the sheets on top of cardboard to dry. You can also use an old window screen for this step. Just make sure that air can get around your paper while drying or it will mildew after a while.
Here is what my finished papers look like. I didn't process mine as much in the blender so I can still see alot of what was on the original paper. If you don't want to see that much of the original paper then you just need to blend up your paper alot until you can't tell what kind of paper you started with in the beginning.
