Brown paper bag and blown eggs
I have had a heavy duty brown paper carrier bag sitting in my stash watching me for ages. Because it was such a thick paper I knew it would be quite difficult to put through my shredder. Well yesterday I tore into into loads of little pieces and put it into a bowl of hot water. I left that for a few hours to soften the paper then put the paper and water into my blender. Once blended I left the sludgy brown pulp all afternoon to soften nicely. The pale coloured 'mouse' is my trial run last night. It dried on a log in front of my log burner all night. This morning I made a few more and then I took some of my widget stash and covered them in pulp. I will use them on Friday in school and the kids can make a mini mouse of their own. Obviously my mice need features adding but I wanted to show you what to do with that paper bag that you have in your stash.
