They are great for journal covers, greeting cards, placemats, scrapbooking and my favorite gift wrap! Instead of tape, wet the wallpaper and wrap the gift. It's fun to watch them being opened. Especially if you wrap a few days before and the glue gets really hard. ;)d

btw: I do have a few patterns for kids crafts, I'd be happy to email to you. Just pm me

If only closed minds came with closed mouths!

If the world is getting smaller, why do postage rates keep going up?

Personal swap anyone?

Only 15? lol
I used to get about 75 booklets or more per year from a local design shop...

I use them for:
recovering boxes, making cards and envelopes, recovering can's (of all kinds, shapes, and sizes), collage.

I have seen them glued to wood (decoupage) pieces to be used as shelves, or coat hanging shelf type units. They sell for about $20 or more!

Hope this inspires you!

I work at a camp too... we have lots and lots of wallpaper sample books (plus excessive amounts of tulle but that's another story... honestly it sounds fun (endless quantities of tulle) but it's really not...) My favorite things to make out of the wallpaper are baskets (weave the paper) and little oragami boxes (or big oragami boxes).

Have fun!

THANKS guys! another idea i had was a fashion project where they design an outfit, draw it, and use the paper as the "fabric" pattern.
