You can use recycled paper to make many products, including: greeting cards, folders, business cards, and notebooks.

How to: Use a blender to shred the paper, and then place the paper inside a small tank with water. Once the paper is inside the tank, add glue and color (natural and chemical). Take the paper out of the water with a mesh and set it to dry. Once dry, iron the paper (for better texture) and decorate it. See the picture on the left for inspiration.
