How to make paper:

The process of making paper is one of the oldest forms of manufacture in history. It originated in China, where the first documented paper was made around AD 105 (Hunter 1943) from plant fibres – mulberry, hemp, and bamboo – collected, beaten, and dried.

Today, it is a common and versatile material used for printing, painting, graphics, signage, design, packaging, decorating, and writing. The basic ingredients of paper are interlaced cellulose fibres, derived from a variety of plant sources, including trees (mostly for woodpulp), rags, cotton, straw, manilla, jute and hemp.

Besides the main ingredient of woodpulp, paper can be made from a variety of other fibres, mainly esparto, rye, wheat, flax and cotton. It is most often produced from well-managed forests where more trees are planted than harvested, ensuring sustainable growth.

Papermaking is a complex process and requires a skilled hand. Traditionally, it was made by hand; the fibres were beaten together, then spread onto a mesh surface and dried. In modern times, large machines produce the paper.

The first documented paper was made around AD 105 and was created from plant fibers – mulberry, hemp, bamboo, and rattan – collected, beaten, and dried. During this time, refined hemp paper was most common for religious texts and official documents, and paper made from mulberry was mostly used for stationery.

Other materials can be used to make paper, such as sedges and grasses that grow along the banks of the Nile River; these are known as papyrus. The Egyptians used this material to create a kind of writing paper.

Vegetable paper is an easier, quicker alternative to traditional papermaking and can be created by overlapping pieces of vegetable stalks or husks, and then pressing them into a pulp. The results can be very pretty and intricate.

In addition, vegetable paper is less expensive than true paper, and it can be easily recycled and reused. Vegetable papyrus is also an easy project that requires little preparation and can be made with just a few simple ingredients.
