Journals, Planners, and Scrapbooks You Can Make Using Recycled Materials

handmade paperOf course, if you’re really hardcore into bookmaking, then starting from the ground up might mean making your paper by hand. The beauty of this handmade paper tutorial by Wenona Napolitano is that you can incorporate recycled materials, from newspaper to used typing paper to anything that you can get your hands on, right into the paper itself. No to-do lists on old-growth forests for you!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
