The Egyptians used to make papyrus using an aquatic plant to create writing sheets. The plant stalk's tissue-thin layers are peeled apart and stacked in overlapping, crosshatched pieces to form a sheet. Despite giving us the word 'paper' sometimes, papyrus is not a true paper but a transparent thin sheet.
