I once created paper using teabags - it was gorgeous! I don't know if you
can buy it or not, but when I made mine, I had several boxes of tea bags in
my cupboard (not sure how that happened!). I cut off the string and staple,
emptied out the tea (a little bit remained), and then tore it up into little
pieces, and then went through the regular papermaking process. It took alot
of teabags to make a small sheet of paper. This was during a time when I was
making a book of different sources to show my students the vast majority of
things that could be used. I used old leaves, grass, dryer lint, and of
course any and all types of recycled paper material. I had alot of failures
naturally, as some materials wouldn't bind, so it was educational for me as
well! Anyway, this got totally off the subject!
