Paper made from Egg Cartons

I have seen this done before and I have always wanted to create my own paper !

So I did ! I love sending special notes along with any orders I get through my local or online sales.

I love all my customers and I always want them to know how appreciative I am !

So I thought this was a perfect way to do so !

I think you will love creating this paper to!

Supplies you need:

• Egg Carton (the paper kind)

• water

• a container big enough to pour everything in

• canvas frame

• piece of screen ( you can use one of those round grease screens that Dollar General sells for $1 you just need to cut the screen out .

• stapler

• blender

I removed the canvas from the frame but I really only used one frame.

I cut my screen and then stapled it all the way around.

I used a heavy duty stapler.

This is what your screen should look like when you are done.

My frame is 5”w x 7”L

So pretty much with one carton you will need about 5 jars of water .

I used a mason jar . 16oz

I used warm water .

I let the carton set in the water for a little while to help it desovle a little bit before putting it in a blender.

I put it in my blender and blended everything real well if you feel like you need more water then add some in .

I then poured everything into my container.

It’s going to get a little messy but it’s all fun ! 🤩

Dip your screen in the mixture then pull it out . Have your area ready to start laying your sheets down.

I took some absorbent towels and pressed down on the paper to get all the extra moisture out.

Then I flipped over the screen and carfully removed the sheet of paper.

It should look like this .

My sheets measured about 5 “ L x 4” W

Then I took my towel again and removed more moisture out of it .

I went ahead and put them outside in the sun to spend up the drying time.

You can just let them dry over night.

Once they were dry I trimmed them a little by gently pinching any pieces that were to long around the edges.

I painted this pretty flower on this piece!

One eggs carton gave me about 12 sheets of paper!

I absolutely loved making this paper!

These would also make really cool journals!

This project does take a little time but it’s worth it!

It amazes me how something so simple can come to life and be transformed into these beautiful pages!

This is so easy and budget friendly!

I hope you give this a try.

I know you will love this project as much as I do!

Here’s another super inexpensive project for you to make!

You don’t have to spend a fortune to have fun beautiful items to add to your decorating!

It all starts just by using a little imagination and a few supplies!

I’m alway trying to create adorable budget friendly projects and this one is another perfect one!

I hope you give these pages made with Egg Cartons a try!
