How To Make Your Own Recycled Paper Greeting Cards

A handmade recycled paper greeting card is a great way to show friends and loved ones that you care while caring for the environment. We’ll show you step by step how you can make your own recycled greeting cards for less than $5.

Step 1. Gather Your Materials

The first step in making your recycled greeting card is gathering all of the materials you will need. We were able to find all of the materials required at a local Dollar Tree store, and you may already have most of what you need to start making your cards at home.

You Will Need:

  • A blender
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paper to be recycled
  • A baking pan or storage tub
  • Felt
  • A screen

We purchased all of our materials at the Dollar Tree

 

For our screen, we used a splash guard normally used for cooking, but you may use a screen from a window stapled to a wooden frame or any other fine mesh screen.

Step 2. Prepare the Pulp

 To prepare the pulp which will be used to make the card, you will first need to tear your paper into smaller pieces. We used the paper on the outside of our Eco-lite packaging, so we needed to also separate the bubble wrap from the paper. Place the torn paper into the blender and add water until the contents are fully immersed. Next, blend the paper and water mixture as finely as possible. We used the liquify setting and got great results.

Don't forget the lid!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3. Add the Pulp to Your Basin

Fill your baking pan or storage tub half way with water, and then pour your pulp into the basin and stir until you have an even consistency. You should be left with a layer of finely blended paper pulp floating on the surface of the water. Our pulp was transformed into a green color by simply adding a green napkin to the mixture in the blender.

Remove any major lumps and stir until there is an even consistency

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4. Screen Out Your Pulp

In this step, you will need to submerge your screen below the pulp, and agitate the water until your screen is coated with a layer of paper pulp. We found it helpful to shake the screen from side to side while gently raising it towards the surface of the water. When you have a layer of pulp on your screen free from lumps or gaps, lift your screen from the water and allow any remaining water to drip through the screen.

Carefully coat your screen in pulp

 

 

 

 

Step 5. Drying Your Paper

Once your screen is coated with pulp, flip it face down onto your felt, and gently pat out as much moisture as possible. Remove the screen, and cover your wet paper with another piece of felt. Continue to sponge out the water from the paper. Leave your paper covered with felt in a dry area in order to dry overnight.

Squeeze out as much moisture as possible

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6. Peel and Cut Your Paper

Make sure your paper has fully dried by touching its surface. If you feel any moisture, allow it more time to dry. Once dry, carefully peel the paper from the felt. Take care to avoid tearing the paper, and cut it to the size of your preference.

Be careful not to tear your paper!

 

Step 7. Make Your Card

Now is when your creativity comes into play. We chose to decorate our card with scrap paper, but you may use paint, markers or any other utensils to adorn your card.

The finished card!

 

Step 8. Pass it On

You are now ready to give your card to your friend or loved one. We will be sending our handmade card to a lucky customer this week. Recycle your phone today, and it could be yours! Visit www.PlantYourPhone.org for more information.
