...but LOVE the papers? Join the club! I can't scrapbook to save my life. Believe me, I have tried, that is not where my talents lie! I leave that to my oh so very talented sisters-in-law!
So, what to do with all those gorgeous papers? Well, Origami of course! Scrapbooking papers are square, a nice weight for folding and with all the accessories in the scrapbooking department of your local hobby store you can go really let your imagination run wild!
Here are a few examples of what I do with my scrapbooking papers:
Do you love to give gift cards, but have no idea how to make the presentation cute and useful? This petite envelope is made from 6" x 6" scrapbooking paper and is the perfect size for gift cards, cash, or little gifts such as a pair of earrings or a simple pendant. I often slip a few business cards and a tip in one and leave them for my server at a restaurant.
This 2" x 2.25" album is made from a single sheet of 12" x 12" scrapbooking paper. This is Origami in it's most pure form. No scissors or glue were used in making this book, just a series of complex folds to create the 5 separate pages and the sturdy little cover. The clasp is made from scrapbooking accessories.
