Rating: 1doesn’t work by By A customer I wish I had read the reviews, the video is not for this kit, instructions are a joke and the plastic sheets included don’t fit in the frame. I made paper as a kid and was never this complicated.
Rating: 1Lacking detailed instructions by By A customer Instructions are nearly non-existant, and even watching a demo on YouTube was of very little help. We did make some, and the result was fun. However, once the water was pressed out, it was extremely difficult to get the mash off the screen.
Rating: 5Fun! by By A customer Really fun crafting product.
Rating: 1Save yourself and buy regular paper by By A customer OMG what a waste of time and a mess!! save yourself and don't get this! first the instructions are horrible, so i had to you tube how to use this. You have to rip up the paper, cut it or put it in a blender, then put it in the water, then try to make the paper and POOF MAGIC you get this paper right?? WRONG!!! . All I did was make a big mess and ugly paper that ripped. gosh im throwing this away. My niece didn't even do anything but decorate it because it made such a big mess
Rating: 3Just OK by By A customer I’ll give this kit 3 stars because it’s an awesome idea and I think with some practice you could accomplish some great papermaking, however I was disappointed in the kit’s initial performance. The package contains everything you would need to make your own recycled paper including shredded tissue paper (1 big bag of white and several smaller bags with bright colors) to get you started. Unfortunately the directions that come with the package are lacking. The enclosed pamphlet has pictorial directions which offer no recommendations on specific measurements/ratios for your project. Further, it tells the user to look up the Paper Factory Youtube video for more detailed instructions. After viewing this video several times I realized that this video is not for this version of Alex Toy’s papermaking kit! The tools used in that video do not match what is provided in the Eco Crafts Paper Making Kit and in fact belong to the Paper Factory kit which is different. I was able to locate a review video for the Eco Crafts kit and get an idea the measurements/paper mixture (we used majority white paper and added a little bit of colored paper to tint), and step by step instructions. We mixed our paper and water in a Ninja blender to be sure we got the finest pulp we could. The mesh screen was not tight the way you would need it to be to be able to squeeze all the water out and the plastic sheets provided for squeezing the water out don’t fit inside the mesh screen which they should, to be able to adequately expel the water. What we ended up with was a really soggy sheet that had too much water in it. The excess water prevented the pulp from adhering together so the paper broke into pieces once dry. I may cut the plastic sheets to get them to fit the screen as I think this was our biggest problem. Overall my kids (8, 6, & 4) had fun with it and loved the paper once done, but not sure it was worth the effort. Hoping that after we practice a few more times that we’ll get better and be able to produce something they can actually use for scrapbooking or other paper crafts.
Rating: 5Five Stars by By A customer i recommend it!
Rating: 5overall a good toy by By A customer overall a good toy. the instruction are a bit vague hence had to watch a YouTube video. we did not use the mixture/blender the first time and it did not work. the second time we used more paper and blender and it worked fine. however dont expect to get normal paper...its more spongy but overall good.
