Decorate with it.
Kristin inspired me to decorate with scrapbook paper after she did this on her dining room wall. Put scrapbook paper in frames or in shadow boxes and you have cheap, new, and pretty wall art.
Wrap with it.
Okay, this idea is from Kristin, too. This year she wrapped her Mother's Day gifts with scrapbook paper and real ribbon. If you have a small gift then raid your scrapbook paper collection. If the paper isn't quite big enough, use a second piece to make it meet in the back. If you use that really nice scrapbook paper that has a coordinating pattern on the back Tie on some ribbon that matches. Either real ribbon or curly ribbon and tie a bow or wrap it around with the seam on the bottom of the package. (Like in the first two pictures below.) Or use a paper flower or other 3-D object to attach. (Like in the third photo.)
Make cards with it.
Cut the paper to the size you want, use stickers or rubbers stamps or coordinating paper or punch outs (that you can get in pages at a craft store) write your message, and find an envelope that fits. If you are wrapping a gift with scrapbook paper, like above, then you can cut out a piece from the same paper or coordinating to match your gift.
Do you have other uses for scrapbook paper?
