Wet Paper Technique: Take your paper and wet one side by running it under a faucet. Let it drip dry for a few minutes. Crumble the paper up so that you have a lot of creases. Unfold and let it finish drying completely. You may find that you need to experiment with how long you let it dry before crumbling it up. If it is too wet then the paper will pill and start to fall apart. Too dry and you will have problems crumbling it up -- it will be too stiff.
