Overview

Transform junk mail, newspapers, comic books, wrapping paper, food can labels, and old phone books into beautiful hand-made paper in just minutes! "Trash-To-Treasure Papermaking", the ultimate guide for crafty recyclers, is every family's answer to the problem of too much paper waste. With just a blender, paper scraps, and water, people of all ages will discover the fun of whipping up sheets of unique handmade paper in a variety of shapes, colours, textures, and sizes. From cards, invitations, and little bound books to paper bowls, wreaths, and ornaments, this book features dozens of creative projects for using the newly made paper. Author and master papermaker Arnold Grummer has devoted his 30-year career to developing the simplest method for making recycled paper. It is accessible even for preschoolers but fun and inventive enough to challenge crafters of any age. "Trash-To-Treasure Papermaking" features Arnold's innovative techniques, shown in step-by-step colour photographs. A simple mould can be made from tin cans, milk jugs, or juice cartons; built from wood scraps; or purchased inexpensively. Add an old blender and start exploring the infinite possibilities of recycled paper. Before and after photos shows the magical transformations of each type of waste paper into its own distinctive sheet of new paper.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Looking for fun, inexpensive, and green projects for your teens? Try one of dozens of projects found in this entertaining and informative book. Starting with a simple papermaking technique using a tin can mold, the book progresses in complexity to techniques like embedment and pulp layering. One project even shows readers how to make seeded paper for planting in a garden. In addition to these papermaking projects, there are instructions on making a paper cast—which is art out of molded paper—and additional projects using handmade paper, such as spin-wheels, pop-up cards, and a coiled bowl. But it is Grummer's infectious enthusiasm for the art of papermaking that informs every project and activity in the book. A former curator of a paper museum and current founder and president of a papermaking educational organization, Grummer includes historical and cultural background of the art. Each project includes simple, easy-to-understand steps and plenty of color photographs for creative ideas and assistance with the instructions. Text boxes add variations, tips, and frequently asked questions to the projects and techniques. Three pages of resources list buying information for supplies, museums, organizations, and online and print sources for readers who want more information about the art of papermaking. This is an excellent resource for families and teachers looking for green projects appropriate for all ages. Reviewer: Heather Christensen
Library Journal
Grummer has been studying and making handmade paper since 1977, and his expertise shines here. It doesn't take a lot of special supplies or equipment to get started, just a few readily available household objects. Grummer begins with basic papermaking, then progresses to more advanced skills. Ample tips on everything from proper technique to troubleshooting problems with finished paper are included. A gallery of clever projects with directions rounds out this friendly, accessible guide to papermaking.
