In Minecraft, it is simple to make Paper.

You’ll only need two things to make a paper.

  • Open Inventory by pressing the E key(PC) or X button(Xbox).
  • Aside from several boxes where your items are stored in, you’ll see a set of four boxes arranged into a box formation with an arrow pointing towards a single empty box. This is your initial Crafting Grid.
  • Place the Woods on one of the slots by clicking on it(PC) or by scrolling it with the RB and LB buttons(Xbox).
  • You’ll see that on the single box, you have got 4 Wood Planks for your single wood. You’ll need 4 Wood Planks.


  • Place 1 Wood Plank on each of the 4 boxes in the crafting grid. You’ll see another thing appears on the single box again. That is your Crafting Table, take that.


  • Right-click on the Crafting Table and place it on the ground(PC) or by pressing the Left trigger button(Xbox).

Your Crafting Table is now ready to use.
