Paper Making
Dry paper on towel

Back one step
Drying the PaperInvert the paper onto a towel or clean cloth. Carefully peel the paper from the couch sheet.

That's it! You let the paper dry (drying time depends on how much pulp you use) and then it's ready to use. The piece of paper that I made for this demonstration had large pieces of white paper in it. This is because I only blended it for about 20 seconds.

One tip that I've discovered is that if you're going to fold your piece of paper in half and use it as a card, it is best to do this when the paper is almost but not quite dry. This way you'll get a neater crease. When the paper is completely dry, put it (either folded or flat) in a flower press or under a stack of heavy books.
