Kids Crafts & Core – Make your own Seed Paper

Today we have a super cool technique for you from Design Team Member Char Dobson and her daughter. This is a TWO PART series from Char so stay tuned for part TWO next week!

Here is a alittle bit about the project from Char:

Today I have a very special project for you:
making SEED PAPER!
Not only is this fun, but it is great fine motor skills practice,
can be used as a science project, and as a wonderful gift for someone special.
What!?! Why!? How!?!??…you may ask…
because not only are we going to make hand-made paper,
you can actually plant this paper as well!
How cool is that!!!!
PART ONE
Supplies you will need:
#1: Scraps of Core Essentials cardstock
***this is a really great way to use up all those scraps you’ve been saving!***
#2: Scrap paper or newspaper
#3: Water
#4: Blender
#5: Fine mesh strainer
#6: Needlepoint screen
#7: Paper towels
#8: Baking sheet
#9: Seeds

Let’s get started!
Step 1: Pick scraps of Core’dinations cardstock with similar colours.
Have your child tear papers into small bits.
Not only is this fun, it is great for practicing fine motor skills.
Step 2: Tear up some scrap white paper or newspaper.
We often empty out our paper shredder or recycling bin for this step.
You should have two same-size piles of torn paper -
one of coloured Core’dinations, and one of white scraps.
Step 3: Alternately layer papers into a blender.
Fill at least half way with water.
Give it a whirl, adding more water as needed.
Step 4: The paper pulp should look mushy, like this.
Step 5: Transfer to a fine mesh strainer.
If your strainer has larger holes in it, simply line with paper towel first.
Press out excess water.
Step 7: Use more paper towels to blot squares.
Step 8: Gather seeds and sprinkle on top.
Press lightly into the squares.
Step 9: Let Dry over night
Stay tuned to for part TWO and how you will get this from that!
