Step-by-Step Guide(with Pictures):

Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to make a paper in Minecraft:


To make paper, you first need to make a Crafting Table in Minecraft.


The next step is to find some sugar cane in the game. To make one piece of paper, you need 3 sugar cane.

Sugar cane can be found anywhere around your Minecraft world as long as it is next to water. Sugar cane only grows beside lakes, rivers, and oceans in the game, as it needs a water source next to it.

It is best to collect the sugar cane you find and then proceed to make a sugar cane farm from there, for ease and accessibility later.

This block grows incredibly quick and can grow up to 4 blocks tall, so collecting enough for any project will not be too difficult.

Once you have collected enough sugar cane, you can place down your crafting table to make the paper.
