Reuse old scraps to make paper from scratch and, in the process, add homemade flair.
Cut a piece of screening at least two inches larger all around than your hoops. Separate the two parts of one of the hoops and stretch the screen over the inner one tightly. Secure it with the outer hoop, just as you would a piece of fabric for embroidering. This hoop is now the mold, and the unscreened hoop is the deckle.
