Making parchment/paper ofuda

Google is only yielding the basic textbook information on paper ofuda, as well as anime and fanfic-related stuff. I'm looking for any and all information on making parchment or paper ofuda. Is there some ritual that goes with it, and can anyone make them, or is this something that is reserved to Shinto priests/priestesses? Also, what sort of materials are considered proper? (I thought of a gag idea for a story in which someone makes them out of photocopier paper because they can't afford parchment, and then getting called out for it, whereupon the guilty party whines about not being paid enough to afford the right materials, but this didn't seem right somehow.)
