The pop of red, looks gorgeous for our seed paper Valentines.
Start by ripping your paper in to small pieces, you want about one and a 1/2 to 2 cups of paper.
Don’t pack the paper in, leave it loose.
Add the paper pieces to a large bowl and add 2 cups of water.
Here’s where you can use a blender or just your hands to mix the paper and water in to a slurry.
If you have a blender for crafting, fabulous.
It’s important to have a separate blender that the one you use for your food, because you don’t want to contaminate food with left over glitter, paper or random bits left over from previous craft projects.
The blender that I use for crafting was picked up for a steal at Goodwill. Keep your eyes open at yard sales and thrift stores if you need one.
Back to the DIY.
If you have a craft blender, add the paper and water mixture to your craft blender and pulse to mix into a slurry.
You want a wet mixture to start as it makes for easier mixing and forming, so if it looks a bit dry, add more water.
