My First Attempt at Making Paper - Paper No 0001

, My first sheets using a basic papermaking kit from Ebay and a basic document shredder from Staples. I shredded a pile of regular utility bills as below.
This is one of the first batch of 20 or so papers i produced in a couple of hours.
Paper No. 0001 8x6 in (20x15 cm) No Additives
The papers are of varying weights, due to both experimentaton, and lack of knowledge. Couched on old 'as found' felt sheets, and pressed between 2 boards using woodworkers ratchet clamps.
