craft for party - using handmade paper samples (and possibly photos)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
While decluttering I came across a small book of 3x5 samples of handmade paper. Most of it is shades of off-white but some are in color as well. It is lovely paper.

Any ideas on what I can do with it? Collage or something?

I am planning a kiddie party in January, if there is any interesting craft using this that I could incorporate there that would be interesting.

Another idea was to take pics of all the kids who will come to that party, print them out in passport size, and devise some activity where the kids exchange pics and by the end of the activity they collect pics of all the rest of the kids. I haven't figured out the activity yet, but these are the elements I have so far. Maybe some kind of autograph book? Or something more interesting.

(It is easy to make 2x2 pics, btw. Take a pic, crop a square portion, and then use some program like Paint or Irfan View to arrange the images in 3 columns, 2 rows so that you have a set of 6 pictures that can be printed in 4x6 size. You can print these off for 15 or 20 cents at most places. There are websites that will do this for you but if you do it yourself you can sometimes get a sharper image because you can start from higher resolution. )

Well do you want to keep the paper 3*5 size or do you want to let the kids cut it up?
Depending on how many sheets of paper there are and how you want to keep the paper (full sheet or cut) really determines the project you can do.

What I would probably do is use it as a background for a small art project. I am envisioning flowers at the moment. But these would be 7-9 yr olds?? I say let the kids have fun and let the kids be creative.

what about using it as a background for a cut out pic. they could decorate the paper part of the background with little crafty things or markers. then they could be framed to take home.
