Paper castings @WBCL

 Trying to do a bit of a different kind of paper project with this one. I used donated white envelopes and popped the paper into the vitamin to make the pulp before class so I could drain some of the water. In class we had the families chose which cookie cutter they wanted to use and spooned the pulp into them. The kids and parents pressed the water out using their fingers and sponges until the paper pulp was as compacted as they could get it. We then sprinkled the project with glitter and gave each one last press to embed the glitter, transfered the project to a paper towel, and removed the cutters. The casting dries in a few days and can be glued to a card or hung.
