I am given boxes of miscellaneous craft stuff on a regular basis by friends who want to get rid of odds and ends.  I was organizing my craft shelves yesterday and came across a box of wallpaper border that I still don't have ideas for and I thought it would be an interesting craft challenge to see what anyone else could come up with!

You're suggesting that we all start with wallpaper border and see where it takes us? I like it. A challange that doesn't suggest and end product, just what to start with. Very interesting... You could line a box purse or wall paper a diarama... or use it for paper doll dresses or...

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

I actually work at Lowe's and the home decor department has like a whole wall of just samples of wall paper and border and stuff and when I'm leaving or coming in and see some that I like I just tare off a little but I use it for scrapbooking. did not know what Else to use it for plus it already has glue on the back how nifty huh. Any way its just an IDEA.

If you stick small pieces of wallpaper to foamboard they make great stamps.
Also you can ink wallpaper and put a sheet of paper ontop then brayer over it to transfer the pattern to the paper Smiley

Also if you cut shapes ie a heart then ink it they look as if you have embossed them.
