Paper Plates for Eco-Friendly Dinner Party
Here is an idea to use your old newspapers and magazines to create a unique and environment-friendly decorative plate. To execute this idea, you will need old newspapers or magazines, water, flour, plastic wraps, modern disposable plates, and scissors.
The first step is to create the mold with flour and water. This mold will serve the purpose of an adhesive that will stick newspaper to the plate; hence the number of its ingredients should not be compromised; otherwise, the desired outcome will not be achieved.
So, to make this mold, you have to use 3 cups of water with 2 cups of flour. Next, you need to cover the plate with plastic wrap. The preferable plate for this purpose is round-shaped. Try our disposable charger plates. They also come in round shapes, and their round shape will be best for this purpose.
Next, cut the newspaper or magazine into wide strips and dip them into the mold. Don't over-dip them so the mold on them starts to drip on the floor. Place the wet strips on the plate and press them into the shape of the plate.
Add at least two layers of strips on the plate to give it strength. Then trim the newspaper to bring your newspaper plates into shape. Remember to trim the material when it is still wet. Leave the plates for a night to get the best results.
Remove the mold from the plates, and your paper plates are ready to be used. Serve food to your guests on your DIY paper plates and amaze your guests with your creativity.
