Paper Mache

I had some leftover balloons from a party and decided to do some paper mache. I forgot how much I enjoy it! I’ve always been intrigued by making beautiful things out of every day items and paper is no exception. I LOVE recycling my own paper. Generally, I make handmade paper for gift tags or lovely handmade journals, but paper mache is a nice change of pace. It’s so easy, too! All you need is a balloon, some flour, water, salt, and newspaper and you’re good to go! :) Right now, my project is in process because it takes a lot of time to dry between layers. I plan on wrapping it up this weekend and turning these paper newspaper balls into beautiful bowls and baskets. More photos coming soon!
