How to make paper on Minecraft: Minecraft is a limitless title: every day you discover new projects and new places. There is always something to learn by playing with it. For example, you just learned about the possibility of creating really useful objects, such as maps or rockets, but which require something you don’t have as base material: paper . So you are looking for a way to make it, but you don’t know how to do it and what resources to look for.

Things are this way, isn’t it? Then I can cheer you up, because you’ve come to the right place at the right time. In this guide of mine, in fact, I will show you how to make paper on Minecraft to make fantastic projects that you probably didn’t even know existed. I will indicate the resources to be collected, which you will then have to use to manufacture this useful resource.

If you can’t wait to find out the suggestions I have prepared for you, sit comfortably and dedicate a few minutes of your free time to carefully read the tips that you will find in the next paragraphs. Are you ready to start? Yup? Let’s get down to business then! All that remains for me is to wish you a good read and, above all, have fun!

Make the card on Minecraft

If you want to produce paper on Minecraft , you need to gather the necessary resources and the appropriate tools for its manufacture. Pay attention to the procedures that I will show you in the following lines.

Collect the necessary materials

The only essential resource for making paper is sugar cane . This type of vegetation grows in any place where there is water next to it: for this reason, it is easy to find the sugar cane plant near rivers or on the coasts.

It can therefore be found in any biome in the world of Minecraft, but it is rarer in the arctic one, because the water is usually frozen. To be more precise, this vegetation only grows on blocks of grass, potting soil or sand, just to give you some examples.

After identifying it, you just need to get closer and interact on it, without the need for any tools. By doing so, you will collect the sugar cane , which will be placed in the inventory.

With this resource you can create sugar , to make foods and potions, or paper , which I will tell you about in the next paragraphs.

Create a workbench

Before you start making paper, you need to create an essential tool for your purpose: the workbench . If you don’t already have one, in the next few lines I will explain how to make it.

Through the use of the ax or the bare hands of the avatar, interact with a tree to obtain the wooden trunks . At this point, open the inventory and locate the Manufacturing section on the right. Place then the freshly harvested logs to get the  axes of wood.

You need four boards to create a workbench: place a wooden board unit on all four squares in the Fabrication section , to get this item. Once this is done, move it to the shortcut bar to equip it and place it in the shelter.

Making paper

Now that you have reached this point, you just have to use the resources and tools I mentioned in the previous paragraphs to produce the paper . So approach the workbench and interact on it to open the manufacturing panel.

Now, place three units of sugar cane horizontally on three squares: you will then be shown the result, that is, of the units of sheets of paper . You just have to drag the newly made card into your avatar’s inventory, to use it later in other projects.

Alternatively, you can find the card as loot inside the trunks , which you find on galleons or in underground fortresses .

Use paper in other projects

The card cannot be used directly, but it is a resource for carrying out other projects. For example, you can create maps , which will help you find your way around the places around you. To make a map, you need eight paper units and a compass . In a workbench you need to place the compass in the center and distribute the sheets of paper around it.

Another useful project that requires paper is the one that involves the manufacture of pyrotechnic rockets : these are useful if you have the Elitre , which I told you about in my guide . To get them, just place a sheet of paper , gunpowder and a pyrotechnic star  on the workbench.

Important is the use of paper for making books . Three units of paper and one of leather are used to create a book. These are mainly used to create the libraries , the spell board or the magic books , which I will tell you about in the next paragraph.

The card to create spell books

The toughest challenges on Minecraft can be addressed through the use of spells . These give properties to objects to improve their characteristics. An example are spells that reduce the damage taken or those that increase the amount of resources collected.

Spells are applied through a tool called a spell board . This is made with a book , two diamonds and four obsidian blocks . After placing it in the refuge, by interacting on it you can use the lapis lazuli to enhance the equipment with a random bonus.

By building libraries around the spell table, you can improve the quality of the upgrades you get. A maximum of fifteen can be built to maximize efficiency. To fabricate a library, is positioned in a workbench three books at the center of the panels horizontally and fill the remaining spaces with axes of wood.

The books can also be used to enclose spells inside, to be used as needed on your equipment. Just put a book on the spell table together with lapis lazuli to enchant it.
