It would be cool to learn how to make paper from peanuts. But, I learned that it wasn't made from the peanuts themselves, but the vine from the peanut.
I don't know for sure cause I haven't done it before.

Making paper from the peanut plant
by: Bret

Our research indicates that George Washington Carver made several types of paper from different parts of the peanut plant. He didn't make paper from the peanuts seeds (the part that we eat), but rather from peanut vines, skins, and shells, which contain fiber.

Modern paper is typically made from wood pulp, or other plant fibers such as hemp. Paper can also made from recycled paper.

George Washington Carver made white paper, colored paper, and newsprint paper from peanut plant vines. He made kraft paper from peanut hulls, and coarse paper from peanut skins.
