Easy Homemade Translucent Paper and Project

I posted a tutorial at Gauche Alchemy this morning. It's an easy step by step way to make paper like this:

Using dyed paper towels, tissue paper and napkins.

And then turn it into something like this in minutes:

I love the see-through quality of this paper and am hoping to make some home decor for windows in the near future. This project was the reason I dyed paper towels in the first place and used the extras for a Paper Towel Flowers Wreath:

Happy Friday everyone :-)

You are seriously so creative! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog today. I was going to email you or leave a comment once we were done with the wreath to show you how you inspired us! I have the perfect place in my house to hang it also! I also like how it is a project that I can do with my kiddos during the summer!
Have a fantastic day!
