We help our host to make handmade paper

Monday was Heather's day off, so she had an interesting project for us.
When we woke up, we saw all this on the table, and we wondered what it was for. Then Heather told us we could help her make handmade paper!
First, we take some of the paper scraps and blend them into a slurry.
Be careful, Paul! Don't fall in!
After Heather put the slurry into a deckle, or frame, then we helped sponge it dry. 
 Ta-da! Here is our paper. You can see that it is still wet, but after it dries it will be our paper!
