What can I make paper from?

Normally, I make my homemade paper from shredded junk mail and old bills.  But the other day I thought to myself why just paper?  I mean paper itself is made from so many different materials, right?, so why not try out some new ideas.  I reached out on Facebook and to my friends and family to see what ideas everyone could share and here is a list of what was shared: 

  • Leaves 
  • Sunflowers
  • Petals
  • Denim
  • Bark
  • Hemp
  • Banana Peels
  • Orange Peels
  • Feathers and Ash

I will post my findings on the ones I try.  Please share your journeys as well.  I will continue to add to the list as more ideas come to mind

  • Dryer lint!!!! <3 

    • Love it.  Going to try it out.  I did Dryer Lint clay once.....  The texture is a bit slimy but the sculptures are basicly indestructable.  :)
