Idle Wednesday

Gather used construction paper (or not used, but I'm trying to be green here.)

Shred into small strips.

Cut up into smaller pieces.

Place in pot and cover with boiling water, let soak over night.

Place in blender, adding just enough water to facilitate blending process. After the paper is well blended, and mostly looks like fibers, squeeze as much water out as possible.  Add just enough Elmer's glue to make pulp the consistency of play doh.

Shape into balls, or what ever shape you want.

Let dry for up to a couple of days, then carefully drill holes for stringing.
