Hey!  A while back, I worked at a certain candle company.  I happened to save these signs from being trashed.  This was about 1.5 years ago!  I have yet to find something to do with them!  As seen in the pictures below they come in many vibrant beautiful colors.  They have tasteful words on them as well.


What would ya'll do with them?  They are 5"x7" and there are about 500 sheets all together. 


I really want to do something pretty with them, but I am unsure. : 0  I just didnt want the SM to throw them away because they were made of high quality paper and had beautiful hues amongst them!

I'd be keen to make my own sheets of paper out of those. Pulp them up and have fun! I'd do each colour together. Then maybe make a rainbow book or something. They are scrumptious colours.

 Cheesy Whoa! Awesome save on your part!!! You're right about the awesome colors... My first thought and instinct would be to make ATC bases from a least some of them for backgrounds... You could also try binding them together to make an art journal or somelike.

And if you think you'll never ever use all of them, maybe join a round or two of the 44 cents swap and trade a few for some other stuff Smiley
