How to Make Hand Paper: A New Generation’s Guide to How to Use Paper, the Most Important Product in the Universe

The most important item in the world is paper, but if you’re not going to use it, why bother?

If you’re in the mood for a kick of paper, check out this hand papermaker’s guide to how to make your own.

You might be surprised to find that hand paper is pretty simple.

You can use it to create anything from your own drawings to artwork for your kids.

You don’t even have to worry about how to print the paper, which is something we covered in our Hand Paper Making 101 guide.

But this guide covers everything you need to know about the process of making paper.

We’ve also included instructions for using a couple of common paper-making tools.

Here’s how to start: 1.

Start by selecting a color to work with.

Choose from red, blue, yellow, green, or brown.

When choosing a color, make sure that it’s not too saturated.

A little more yellow can make your paper softer.


Using a ruler, trace out the shape you want your paper to be.

For this tutorial, I chose a rectangular shape, so I started by drawing circles and squares.


Using your ruler, draw a line through the center of your rectangle.

Make sure that your lines don’t touch the paper.

The paper should stick together.


With your ruler in your hand, cut out the circles.

Make certain that the paper is flat and smooth.


Start drawing the line between the circles, then trace the outline of the outline on the paper with a ruler.


Using the ruler, cut the outline out of the paper again, so that it looks like the circles are all cut.


Using one of the standard hand paper tools, such as the ruler and paper cutter, cut through the paper to form the shape of the circle.


Using another paper cutter and ruler, create a hole about the size of your thumb.

Make a little bit of glue on the outside of the hole so that the glue won’t stick to the paper and get trapped.


With a paper cutter or ruler, mark where the hole is and how many circles you want to make.


Using an offset pen, cut your outline out and trace the shape into the paper using the ruler.

The hole is now the middle of your circle.

You may have to use your fingers to keep your pen from sliding off the paper when you cut through.


Using some tape, carefully align your circle with the paper by starting with a pencil and then adding lines.


Using two scissors, cut off all the paper around the circle and glue the hole together.


With the paper cut out, you’ll now need to make a circle.

For the most part, the best way to make this is with a round, circular object.

A circle should be about 1 1/2 inches wide, about 4 inches tall, and about 2 1/4 inches deep.

You should have enough paper around your circle to make about 20 paper-like patterns.

I like to start by drawing a circle in the middle with the pencil, but you can do it in the same way with your ruler or ruler-cutting tool.


To create your pattern, draw the outline onto the paper one at a time.

Use your ruler to cut the circle out, then use your tape to attach the circle to the center paper.


Use the tape to line up your circles to create a square.

Make two straight lines that meet at the center.

Cut out the squares using a ruler and tape, then glue them together.


Using either the ruler or paper cutter to cut out a circle, use a pen or ruler to line your circles up.

Make more lines and add more circles, and you’ll have a circle!


Using tape, line your paper up with your circles and glue them back together.


Repeat this process until you have a whole circle.

Make your paper, or a few, for your children to take home.

The best part?

You can even print your paper out!
