How to make paper in Minecraft?

Let’s head out to find the necessary resources before you make paper in Minecraft.

Step 1: Find water

Sugar cane is an item that appears next to water sources. You’ll most likely locate them next to rivers, lakes, or the open season sandy or grass blocks. They grow up to four blocks high, so you can’t miss them!

Step 2: Collect sugar cane

Once you have them in sight, chop them with your hand since they break easily. You’ll receive the same amount of cane as per the block height. For instance, a stem three blocks high will yield three sugar cane. To maintain a steady supply, you should replant some to grow more in the future.

Step 3: Craft paper

Now that you have your cane, head to your crafting table. You’ll need to insert three of them anywhere on the grid to produce one paper.
