Paper Recycling ToolsHave you ever wanted to make your own paper for invitations or special hand-written note cards? Many books and articles have been written on how to make paper, but what distinguishes this How to Make Homemade Paper article from the rest is it encourages the use of newspaper destined for the landfill or recycle bin to be used as the raw material for your new handmade paper.

This is the perfect "re-cycle project:" newspaper, perhaps itself made from recycled paper, is used to create the pulp from which your new heavy-duty note paper is made. It’s fun and easy to do — a great project for these cool fall evenings at home with the family. After the paper has dried, you can use some autumn or Halloween-themed rubber stamps to jazz up your new homemade cardstock.
