I like this.  For one of my classes we made paper shoes.  Paper is one of my favorite meduims.  It would be neat to make wearables out of reused paper or even thin cardboard (I think called chipboard).  Just an idea.

I like this one - I make all kinds of garments for the stage, but have never made one from paper yet - it really would be a challenge!

Paper garments sound so much fun - I would love to try this!

There was a recent featured project with paper towels that was really cool -

Yeah, that'd be cool. Could we use newspapers and magazines too?

yknow i think it'd be interesting if we just expanded the notion of paper as far as it could go - newspaper, tissue, crepe paper, papier mache, origami, clothes tags, cardboard, boxes, paper pulp, home made paper, paper ribbon, receipts, packaging..theres heaps more.

I'm still up for this one.  Paper is a great medium and free for the most part which is great for me since I don't have much money right now.  I have so many ideas and I just need motivation to start... This would surely get me to start.
