3. Tear pieces of the blue construction paper into small pieces and put into the blender.

4. Add small amounts of warm water just so that the paper is moist but not to runny.  Blend until paper is processed and without lumps.

5. Scoop out the pulp and begin filling the mason jar lid.

9. Allow the paper to dry for a few hours then remove the lid from the nylon and carefully pop out your paper Earth.
