Begin by filling a blender with handfuls of shredded paper. If you don't have a paper shredder you can just rip your paper up into small squares. Ripping the paper up works best, because it exposes the paper's fibers. Now pour a little bit of warm water into the blender.
Don't pour much in, you can always add more water if needed. Blend the paper and water on high. You'll need to stop after 30 seconds, and push the pieces on the sides down. This is what it should look like when it's done mixing. The color of your paper pulp will be different, depending on the color of the paper you begin with.
I had a bit of black paper in there, so my pulp is on the darker side. Then drain off as much water as possible.
I used a thin rag to strain the water through. Now lop clumps of paper pulp into your muffin tin.
A heaping tablespoon full should do the trick. One blender full should be enough to fill one muffin tray of Starting in the center press the pulp down, and work your way out to the sides. Then start pushing the pulp up the sides, and press the paper making it an even thickness all around.
When you have finished shaping the seed starter cups, carefully use a paper towel to soak up the moisture on the bottom. Then let the cups sit for at least 24 hours, or until they feel dry to the touch.
It's best to keep them in a dry, warm, and bright place.
I'll post some photos when I have some seeds growing in them! After waiting for 24 hours the cups were not fully dry, so I decided to try sticking them in the oven. They slid right out when I took them out of the oven. The outside is extra smooth.The entire pulp and paper industry is still adjusting to the reverberations emanating from the strict environmental policies recently imposed in China and bracing for potentially more stringent policies in the near future.
