embossing, and watermarking. And then they’ll put all that beautiful new paper to use with the many illustrated projects. Along with the step-by-step instructions are the author’s suggestions for simple experiments that will yield hundreds of unique decorative papers. With Grummer as mentor, crafters will soon feel like accomplished artists!
30 years teaching ermaking pap
THE NAME ARNOLD GRUMMER is virtually synonymous with papermaking. Formerly on the faculty of the Institute of Paper Chemistry, Grummer has taught the magic of papermaking to such likely students as preschoolers, printers, and artists, but also to forensic scientists, corporate executives, and others. He lectures around the United States and Canada and has made numerous television appearances.

Recycle and Reuse!
Junk mail, food labels, newspapers, catalogs, magazines . . . Trash-to-Treasure Papermaking shows crafters just how fun and easy it is to turn that household pile into intriguing new papers. They’ll even learn how to incorporate extra bits of fabric, thread, and ribbon from the sewing basket. Or leaves and grass clippings that were bound for the compost pile. The needed equipment, too, can be found in the recycling bin or around the house. And then there are the 40plus projects that showcase handcrafted paper— Christmas ornaments, coasters, mobiles, animals, garlands, gift wrap, books, lampshades, and more. All of which can someday be recycled into new projects. Recycle, reuse, recycle, reuse . . . What could be greener?
