Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I wonder if they would work for paper beads, you could also make some funky patterned bracelets.  If they are big enough, use them to mat pictures in a frame (or use them to decorate the frames).

A few years back I was working for an interior designer. I was able to get my hands on some upholstery samples about the same size as your wallpaper ones. I took them and created a patchwork table cloth for a dinner party. I also epoxied them to my closet doors in a patchwork design as well. I really enjoyed it (until I moved) and got a lot of compliments out of it too. So those are some thoughts! Good luck!

When I was a little girl my cousin used to get wallpaper sample books like these for me.  I used them to "wallpaper" my dollhouse.  She used them for scrapbooking.

I would most definitely use these for cards, book making, and for scrapbooking. Maybe creating collages for framing, or as really awesome notecards. You could cut them into strips and weave them to make a neat bookmark for yourself. The possibilities are indeed endless! Smiley

Oooh! Good score. I've been meaning to go looking for discarded wallpaper books.  I would use them for many things from altered books to card making to mixed media collage.
