How To Make  Recycled DIY Seed Paper

Step 1:

First, rip stamp-sized bits of paper and place in a bowl. I used around 4 – 6 A4 sized pieces of paper, to make 4 cards. Feel free to mix up your paper colours; light colours are best.

Step 2:

Pour in around 1.5L of water, and use a hand blender to mix this until it’s nice and pulpy.

Pour another 2L of water into a large storage bucket, and pour in the pulp mixture. Place your tule in your embroidery hoop, give the pulp a good mix, and then use a ‘scooping’ action to pick up the pulp on the tule.
