Default I have a stash of seven...

Wallpaper sample books that I got for free! I never realized that when home renovation stores discontinue the sample books they either toss them or give them away. I called around to a couple of places and the second one told me to come on in, cause they had a bunch. I had no intention of taking all of them, but when I started looking through the patterns...the colors...I was lost. I have toile, roses, kid prints...lots of fun stuff. Only downside is that now I have to find some time to play with it all. I bought some composition books from Target for .35 each to cover. Any other bright ideas for all this wealth of craftability???

What about the albums in the holiday mini? Can you use the paper other than to cover things?(Is it scrapbook safe???) You could use it on buckets,cans etc...

Ooh, paint cans, yeah. Thanks for that idea. I saw some plain ones at Lowe's last week. That would be perfect!

Gift sacks would be fun! With coordinating tags... I used to make these all the time. the trick is finding the right adhesive that will stick to the vinyl. Trust me, glue sticks don't cut it : )

A friend of mine found a wallpaper store that was going out of business. She bought rolls and rolls of wallpaper and uses it for wrapping paper. Very Cool!

I have a bunch of these I got for my girl scout troop, we made journal covers.
