Anyway, despite all that, the paper looks great. the best pieces were the ones where we used regular (though found in the recycling bin) printer paper. The covered-in-adds junk mail still looks fine, though the color isn't quite as nice as the others.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

with the holidays coming up, it's time to start making or buying gifts. Especially green gifts! In this tutorial, T.Y. and I show you how to make paper. You can also add seeds and give the gift as a plantable one!
- 2 tubs
- measuring cup
- white glue
- some kind of screen(we actually used a silverware divider that was made out of a screen-like material)
Unfortunately, I can only upload 100mb to blogger at a time, and the video is slightly bigger than that. I just thought you might like to know why there are two parts:)

Also, when shopping for paper, look for recycled brands.

- Try to stay away from twixes and other candy wrappers with metalic insides. They take a lot of time to fuse corectly, using up electricity with the iron
- thin wrappers work the best. You just have to fold them several times.
- when ironing chip bags, don't fold them at all, and just sweep the iron over both sides
- avoid cheetos. they melt and buckle up.
- Always, always, always put a peice of wax paper between the plastic and the iron; if you don't, you will have a BIG mess.
- don't take too much time with each peice of plastic. You don't want to waste energy with the iron. Also, you don't want to realese too many plastic fumes.
That's pretty much all! Just be creative with your recycled material.
