Minecraft is a world full of resources and things to do. The opportunities are endless and every player immediately feels at home. One of the most beautiful and fun resources to use is paper. You can do tons of things with paper in Minecraft! Did not you know? Well yes. First of all, paper is a basic element for making very useful maps through the cartography bench. These maps, which can have various sizes, are particularly useful in Minecraft as they provide an invaluable and irreplaceable tool for orientation.

Without maps, in fact, it becomes a challenge to be able to find your way home after long wanderings around the world and moreover they also show all the silhouettes of the existing buildings, helping you to always find new ones and make substantial conquests, perhaps discovering treasures that otherwise you would not have seen. But the applications of paper are very many. For example, through paper you can get books in which to write down notes or secret things, patterns or firework rockets. Do you understand how useful it can be to have this resource available during the game? In this guide I will show you how to make paper in a few simple steps. Let’s start making paper right away! I assure you it’s really simple and you won’t regret it!
