Herby Shredded Paper Briquettes

I made herby shredded paper briquettes inspired by an idea I found on Red Ted Art using my Fellowes Powershred 63CB. Perfect for these colder nights and also brilliant for camping trips and even getting that bonfire going!

Take a watch. I’d absolutely LOVE it if you could give me a thumbs up and subscribe too. It will help me find all you channels for a start, and give me a big dose of warm fuzzies! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Weirdly I shredded a tonne of stuff a few weeks ago and wondered if there was something I could do with it all – must remember for next time ๐Ÿ™‚ PS my shredder isn’t quite as fancy as that beast! Now I’ve opened YouTube I may aswell just cancel all plans for the day! #bigpinklink

  3. Great idea! Much more interesting than using it for guinea-pig bedding! #bigpinklink

  4. This looks brilliant and so easy. I’m not sure I could do it though, I have such an irrational dislike of wet paper, it’s like nails down a chalkboard. I wonder if it would work with sawdust or something instead….
