Expert Answer:

  1. Tear the paper to be recycled into small pieces and submerge these paper pieces for a day in water.
  2. Make thick paste of paper by pounding it.
  3. Spread wet paste uniformly on the wire mesh fixed to frame and drain off water.
  4. Remove the layer of paste carefully from the frame, spread it on a sheet of newspaper in the sun.
  5. Keep the corners of the newspaper sheet pressed to prevent it from curling up.
  6. If needed, add materials like food colour or flower petals in the paste to get recycled paper with beautiful patterns on it.
