I'd use it to make paper, and for papier-mache.  You could also make those beads, the ones that you make from rolled triangles of paper.

...so believe when I say Im no better than you, except when I craft so I guess it aint true.

when i was a kid we did this craft where you fold each page down (corner to the inside)you end up with a round book because the pages are all doubled. then you spray paint it green to make a christmas tree.
kinda lame but i thought id throw it out there.
