Hej,

that might sound odd because I usually rather die than give up scores at all but I recently figured out that I have two booklet with scores that are old and which I never ever will play/ sing.
So what can I do with them? I tried to use the paper to make origami but it's too old and doesn't fold well Sad.
Do you have an idea?

Greetings Christina

If you have an old table you could use them to cover the top.  Decoupage the pages to the table and give it a coat of polyurethane(or a resin) once that dries.
You could also decoupage them onto other items.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Picture frames? I'm going to use some old sheet music to do decoupage a picture frame, and then put a picture from my high school orchestra days in it. I'll probably make a second one to give to my sister, since we were in orchestra together for years.

Frame it? Apparently all I can think of is picture frames. I'm lame. Undecided

I'm thinking of wreaths, not just the christmas kind....

 The little desktop thing after the wreath in this one would be cool too.

If you decide you'd rather not do anything with them, I'm sure there's also a lot of people that would love them in a swap  Wink

You could turn them into paper flower like the ones here:

Ooo and You could dye the paper using tea, or beet juice, or blueberries other goodies and then lay them to dry so that you could have colored flowers.

Cute paper gift bags?
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346652.msg4035857#msg4035857

Depending on the size of the sheets they can be made into small 'favor' type bags or larger gift bags. I think my bf has old score books - I'll have to test this out!
