Chop off a hunk and gather it into a rosette.  Glue a button or jewel in the center; attach to a book cover or handbag or anything.

Bunch up to make curtain type swags for windows/doors.

Hair scrunchies?

I like to gather and use for tutu type skirts on clothes pin dolls or ornaments; you could also do these 2-D for a page in a journal or scrapbook (That is, gather as you would to go around a clothes pin, but then glue the gather to the picture of a doll or ballerina.)

If worst comes to worst try to trade it for something else?

You could make pretty windsocks. Or a pink mummy costume for halloween.

Pink tulle. 0_____0

But it's only three inches wide, so it's more like a trim?

I would use it to trim skirts and stuff. If you gather some strips they'd make pretty chokers or bracelets.

I'm pretty stumped, sorry. I bet you could get rid of a bunch in some sort of supplies swap.

Find someone having a pink wedding, and sell them? lol

I bet you could do something decoration-wise for a baby shower with this stuff.  (I'm assuming it's the stuff that comes on a large spool, right?)  Rosettes or fan-type things to either stand alone or serve as backgrounds to small charm-type decorations, pacifiers, diaper pins, etc. 

Or can you scrunch it up lengthwise and crochet/knit with it?  What about gathering a bunch of it up and tying it firmly to make bath scrubbies?

I have a really cute broomstick skirt with a tulle ruffle at the bottem. It's so cute, so what of you used it as a gathered ruffle for other things?

I'd be wary of tulle for scrunchies - it can snag in your hair.  Use it to trim accessories (eg the top of bags), make Christmas decorations out of it (draw up several tight rosettes, and knot them together to make a ball).

How about body scrubbers for the shower?  I hate that those stupid things cost over $1 each!
