I ordered 300 sheets of paper for about $20.00 and I got them today. Some of the pieces of paper I don't know what to do with. How do you use these? Do you cut them apart and use them or do you use them whole as a backgroung?

Both. Cut them into strips to use on a layout, make flowers, banners, and cards.

If you think they're truly hideous and won't use them you could always make envelopes out of them.

Cut them out and pop dot them on a layout.

It's a little square or circle of foam with adhesive on both sides. They actually come in tape too with different thicknesses and in black or white. They are usually available just about everywhere. Makes it stand up and really adds to the look of the item.

I'm sure there are templates out there you could print on the wrong side of paper in your printer and fold. I have the Martha Stewart score board and there is a triangle thing and dimensions to help you make envelopes.

I would totally cut them apart. You could use them as accent pieces on a layout, or on cards, too.

I would cut them apart.

Card-making or tags are what first comes to mind.

By the way, the 3rd sheet listed is really cute!

When I have papers that I won't use...I use them as testers for punching. I also use them as a stamping test paper. If they are white on the back..i cut them in 4ths & use as paper to write what I want to do with my page that I put in my page planning bnox for a crop. I also use them to practice writing before I journal. I try out my pens before I use them.

I would probably use these papers if I knew how to use them. I didn't know if you use them as a background on a layout or cut them apart and use them as embellies.

I think the third one is adorable too. There are some more in that pile I bought that are even more pretty than that one. I got an astonishing amount of gorgeous paper for what I payed for it.

I've enjoyed using some papers like these, almost always cutting them up into individual components and using them as embellishments.

I thought you wanted to use them but you said you bought a lot of papers so I thought maybe some were some you didn't want to use.

Oh, there are some papers in there that I can't think of anything I would use them for other than toilet paper. MAybe something will come along that will look simply fabulous with them. I have seen some of you guys do some amazing things with the ugliest paper.

see if you can use the really ugly ones for page borders - every time i want just a very thin border around the page, and pick a nice paper - it's soooo sad to cut the entire page just for that! and most of the time you don't even see the design, just that little bit of color in a tiny strip on the side..

I would cut them up and use them as embellishments or journaling tags.
