Paper Mache But Better

It’s Handmade Monday again!  I hope you go and check out everyone else’s stuff I always see such cool stuff!

I stumbled across an interesting recipe for paper mache awhile back and saved it for another time because it looked messy and I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to make with it. I still wasn’t sure what to make with it, but I decided to try it anyway. I like recycling paper, and have made home made paper for cards in the past, so this seemed like a good project for me to try.

It turned out to be pretty easy to make, requiring minimal ingredients and tools but it took some time since it requires “cooking”. This also means that if you want to do it with kids you would need to be right there with them, and I would recommend you do that part for them. But it does make a nice smooth paper mache, and I was impressed with the results, in the end.

So, lets head over to Make It and you can see how I made Crazy Little Paper Beads.
