Paper is an item crafted from sugar cane. Paper is used to make maps, fireworks and books which are used to craft bookshelves and enchantment tables. Paper can naturally occur in chests inside strongholds. There is no way to write on paper, but it is possible to write inside a book with a book and quill.

Adding more gunpowder increases the duration of the rocket. Up to three gunpowder can be used. Furthermore, multiple firework stars can also be used, in which case all will go off simultaneously when the rocket detonates. By limiting the amount of gunpowder to one, it is possible to use up to seven firework stars.

The output will be a zoomed-out version of the input map.
Please note, shift-clicking to retrieve a zoomed-out map will cause the eight extra sheets of paper to be consumed, but the map will be unchanged. The data from the old map will not be carried over to the new one. This is Minecraft Bug MC-87.
