Start by filling up your blender half way with water and then tearing bite-size pieces of cotton linter, paper towels or tissue and adding them to the blender. Run your blender for 15 to 20 seconds. Pour the paper pulp into your bath of water. Use your hands to evenly, distribute the pulp throughout your container.
Dip you screen into your container making sure to get it underneath the pulp that is floating. Carefully allow the screen to float to the top. Add any pressed flowers, leaves or other decorations at this point. Using your hands, add a tiny layer of pulp on top of your decorations. Apply just enough to hold the decorations in place.
Lift the screen out of the water and allow water to drain through. Use a sponge to gently press on top of the pulp in order to squeeze out some of the excess water. Be very careful when lifting the sponge up. Lay your screen face down on top of the white felt. Gently tap the screen to release the paper pulp onto the felt. Lay another sheet of felt on top of the pulp and gently press with the palm of your hand. Repeat with another sheet of felt. You can speed up the drying process by using an iron set to low. Allow the paper pulp to dry for about 24 hours.
