- Brown paper bag
- White glue
- Wax paper
- Stir Stick
What to do
Rip the brown paper bag into one inch wide strips of equal length.
In a bowl make a mixture of half glue and half water. (To make one sheet of papyrus you only need about 1/4 cup of each.)
Dip the brown paper strips in the glue mixture and remove excess glue.
Lay the strips side-by-side on the wax paper, overlapping them slightly.
Apply another layer of strips at a right angle to the first layer.
Let the paper dry overnight.
Decorate your creation with paints or crayons.
