This study was conducted to invent another quality of paper. A process of making paper out of leaves. It was also made to lessen the cutting of trees and to make use of rotten leaves and other leaves that has less usefulness. The materials used can be easily seen in our backyard surroundings and at our home. Our project was made to compare to the commercial papers to see which has a better quality and strength between hand-made papers and machine produced papers. To also give the quality of paper that is natural, unique and useful especially when making projects, other arts materials and other special purposes. color Banana Papaya whitish and yellowish large greenish medium Procedure Blending Finished Boiling Bleaching Start Cut the leaves into pieces and put it in the Cauldron.

Add an amount of bleach. Molding After bleaching, wash the leaves and mold it. Shape it like a paper Generalization It is concluded that there is another way of making papers out of the 3 leaves that we had experimented instead of using fibers from cut down trees. We can make a different kind and texture from the leaves that we had experimented. It’s unique and different compared to the commercial paper that we are using. We conclude that caustic soda and beach can extract fiber. We also observed that leaves with the proper procedure can make a better quality of paper. Recommendations References • Grolier.
