Make your own paper This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


      A great way to helpprotect the environment is to make your own paper using dryer lint.

Usewhite or gray dryer lint, mix it with old newspapers, add water and put it all ina blender until it's well mixed, but not too wet. Then put the mix on cardboard,cover it with wax paper and roll it out flat with a rolling pin, making sure allexcess water is removed. When you have rolled it out, let it dry for a day. Thisrecycled paper is a little rough, but can be used as scrap paper or for shortnotes. If you separate the colors from your dryer lint, you can make differentcolor paper.
