What a great way to dispose of your shredder paper. I would experiment with natural dyes and add some colored rocks to make pavers.
I add fiberglass to all my concrete flatwork and it virtually eliminates cracking. I wonder if adding a little bit to the mix would strengthen them for use as pavers???
I have never used papercrete but it sounds interesting.

I think I'll try a little experimenting....I would think that the glue used in the process of making the cardboard layers would only add to the structural strength of the finished product ??
Since it was the flexing that was the problem. I got a bale of cellulose insulation, mixed up some paper-crete slury with it and used something like a ceiling texture sprayer to put a thicker ( 1/4 - 3/8 inch ) layer on top of everything. That was five or six years ago, except for the very center of the top where I didn't put much of a layer on it, it is still in fine shape and still makes a nice garden shed.
