    Oh, those are nice. I had forgotten about doing pressed paper. What a great idea for an ornament exchange.

    Well I think you can use the wrapping tissue paper ..I used kleenex tissues and there is info for using toilet paper...I have not done a lot so far...hoping to get more info..no glue just layers of the paper pretty wet and you press it well into the mold..I used at least 10 layers of paper ...as I find more info I will post it
