Default Any ideas for Paper Twist?

I have quite a bit of this left over from projects a few years ago (before card making).

Thanks,
Kimberly

What is Paper Twist? Sorry if this sounds dumb.

Not dumb at all ...

It is sold in the ribbon or bow section of craft stores. It is tightly twisted into a rope when you buy it. When you are ready to use it ... you untwist it and it is fairly wide. It makes nice bows.

I used it for making paper angels several years ago. I glued pieces of it together for the angel's dress ... wrapped some over a styro foam ball for her head and used a bow in the back of her dress for her wings.

I have used it for layering on cards before ... I have also pressed it out (with my hands) and stamped on it ... sort of like crumpling up paper and then smoothing it back out again.

Oh...I have tons of this stuff, and I never thought about using it for stamping. I'll have to go through my craft closed with a fine tooth comb.

I used 2 colors of paper twist to "weave" on the outside of small cardboard boxes which had the tops cut off. Then I lined the boxes with batting covered in material. I would line both length and width to cover it all. The paper would already be hot glued down before the batting/material was added. They ended up making nice gift boxes.

Just a thought.

In a craft magazine ( I don't remember which) they had taken a spiral paperclip and had wraped whe paper, unrolled, around the edge to look like a flower with the middle of the spiral being the center
It looked cute! Oh, they also cut a piece of green in the shape of a leaf and tucked it under the side
