Crimped Paper Question... ANSWERED!!!


I'm trying to figure out how to make those 1/8" strips of crinkled paper?
(used as filler as above).

Do you use a paper crinkler and then run them through a shredder?

Or is there an all purpose crinkler/cutter on the market??
(and is "crinkler" even a word??)

Or do you just have to buy the stuff??

thanks friends.

She had the answer and it was just what I hoped for.

Crinkle the paper first,
then run it through the shredder.

Now, to find a 1/8" shredder. =)
Thanks DeeDee

And thanks to all who left comments.

I have heard of paper crimpers, but don't know anything about them. Easy to BUY some crimped paper in packages!

Buy the stuff in big bags at Hobby Lobby for about 3 bucks! Not worth the trouble to make it I dont think - it comes in all colors at the HL!

If 'crinkler' is not a word, let's make it one!!

I had the same question a while ago. I believe there is a machine that crinkles the paper......but I don't know if there is a crinkler AND a cutter. So in the end, I just bought it, but jeepers, it's not cheap if you want different colors.

Now for the crazy confession. One time I shredded pink paper, took it out of the shredder...and piece by piece folded and folded and folded to make my own crinkles.
I am somewhat determined and want what I want.

How do you crinkle it? Is there such a thing as a crinkler? I want to get a shredder to shred junk paper as a filler for my packages. I think it's greener than the packing peanuts.
