I have no interest in scrapbooking but I LOVE all the gorgeous new scrapbook paper. Anyone have ideas on what other kinds of crafty things can be made with them? Thanks!!

One idea I love is mounting them on a box/canvas for wall art. cheap and the results were beautiful.

I've also used them to cover wood letter to put up on the wall. You can use names or just words.

And, you could cut snowflakes out of them.

Cut or rip and decoupage onto a plain white lamp shade.

Decoupage on old furniture (martha stewart had a nice spread in her mag a few years back)

I use it to cover the thick wooden picture frames from craft stores.

I used it for dd's advent calendar--I cut sheets into 4 squares each and on the back of each one wrote and drew a picture of that day's treat. Then I rolled them all up, tied them with ribbon, labeled the outsides, and put them in a pretty jar. A little late for a new idea for this year, though!

We cut up toilet paper rolls and mod podged pretty scrapbook paper onto the inside and outside of them to make napkin rings for dd's gift to her grandparents.
