Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Collect Scraps and Soak
collect your scraps and cut them up then put them into a cup full of water and stir until it looks like goop
Step 2: Put the Goop on a Cookie Sheet and Dry
scoop the paper goop onto the cookie sheet (you want a nice even layer) and compress it by putting another cookie sheet on it. next you will need to get the water out (I did that by putting a paper towel down and rolling a cup over it) then put it outside to dry
once dry take the paper off the pan
NOTE: I put it outside to dry then put it in the oven for a few seconds. if you do put it in the oven wacth it at ALL times and make sure it doesn't catch on fire
Step 3: Trim Off the Edges and Write!
trim off the vertical edges
then choose something to write! I wrote: "paper should be recycled and made back into paper by YOU"
Step 4: Write on It
Step 5: Make a Frame
put the paper on the piece of cardboard and draw the outline
measure 1 inch in from the outline all the way around and then cut out the middle
measure 1 1/2 inchs out from the outline and cut
then for the backing I just outlined the square that we cut out
Step 6: Glue the Frame Together
using hot glue glue the paper to the front square (make sure you can see the writing) then hot glue the backing on
after that hot glue a wire onto the back so you can hang it
