In this tutorial, we will explain step-by-step how to make paper in Minecraft survival mode. While the process is straightforward, the question comes up often. So let's jump in and get started.
3 Sugar Canes
First of all, start by searching for sugar cane in areas near the water. Locate and gather three bunches of sugar cane to craft paper in Minecraft survival mode.
Of course, you know that you can craft simple items with the 2x2 crafting grid. However, to craft more complex things like weapons, armor, and tools, you'll need a crafting table. The table allows you to open a 3x3 crafting grid, which you will use to craft paper.
Go ahead and open your crafting menu. Make sure your crafting table is a 3x3 crafting grid. Select the three sugar canes from your inventory and place them horizontally in the second row of your crafting grid. Select the newly crafted paper and move it to your list. That's it! You have now learned how to make paper in Minecraft successfully. Congratulations!
Since you now know how to make paper in Minecraft, you're probably wondering what you can craft with this item. Or maybe you already know what you want to make. In any event, let's look at a few of the main things you can craft using the paper from your inventory.
The first, and likely most apparent use of paper, is to craft a book. Books are useful as you learn more skills in the game and wish to store things like enchantments. Of course, you can always use the book to trade with villagers.
Although a book may be the first thing that comes to mind when crafting with paper, a map is IMO more critical earlier on in the game. Combine eight pieces of paper with your compass to craft your map. The map provides players with a helpful visual reference of the world as you explore.
