Step 1: Material's You Need

You will need a

Muffin tin

bowl

spoon

paper

water

Step 2: Soaking the Paper

First you will need to soak you're shredded paper in water.

Step 3: Pulping the Paper

Second you will need to pull apart and pulp the paper. If you like you could blend it but this is optional.

Step 4: Straining the Pulp

Next you need to strain and squeeze the pulp. Try to get almost all of the water out.

Step 6: Forming the Pot

    What a great idea! Raise seedlings in a greenhouse then plant them out without any transplant shock.
