Newspaper to Crafting Paper

I love going to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum because they have this absolutely incredible art studio where the kids can make paper, screen print, and paint. I think I like this area even more than the kidlets do.

We make it there about once a year and I just loved making paper so much I went out and bought a paper making kit from a local store.

Well I tried it and it was okay. Was not so keen on the kit we bought and probably would have dine just as well grabbing some supplies from the hardware store and making the press myself.

The end result, well my daughter decided to decorate it with popcorn, so check it out:

Well it made for a good way to teach my children about upcycling newspaper into something a little more elegant and it was fun. Popcorn however does not make for good craft paper.
