Here's a little exercise in re-purposing.
I was covering school books the other day and had loads of this paper backing, sheets and strips. I used the strips to make origami stars. I miss making them, I can't find the paper for them here and they are hard to cut yourself because they have to be perfectly straight. Instructions here.
We used the sheets to make sticker books! Did you have these growing up? We used to collect and trade stickers with them and have pages dedicated to puffy, shiney, and scratch & sniff stickers. (Do they make those anymore?) The girls and I each made a sticker book.
It was fun and now everyone wants to buy more stickers!
