Things you can make with Wallpaper Samples

* Picture Mat - Cut wallpaper to make a mat for pictures. Turn paper over and measure picture to be framed. Using a knife cut out hole. Tape picture to back of paper and frame. This looks wonderful. Contributed by H&RBlockGan

* Bulletin Board - Cover the cork part of a bulletien board with wall paper (tape on for a temporary different look, glue on for a permanant look). It looks especially good if it matches the walls or color of the room!Contributed by Meghan

* Drawer Liner - Line the inside of desk drawers with wall paper. That way, things slide out more easily, and it makes it look richer. Contributed by Meghan

* Mirror Decoration - Use the same border as in the bathroom to trim around mirrors. I have cut about 1/4 inch strip off of the border and wet it, then stick it on the mirror around the perimeter. Looks great! Contributed by Kelly Peak,

* Designer wastebaskets - Wrap large ice cream containers (like the type used by Baskin-Robbins) with leftover wallpaper, to make 'designer' waste baskets (goes great in a bath or bedroom papered with the same material). Contributed by Clyde Morron,

* Make placemats - Paste two sheets together, with pasted sides together, and let completely dry. Cut out in rectangular, oval or other desired shape for placemats (you can use other placemats as a template). Can be laminated at a hobby or teacher's store for extra durability. Contributed by Clyde Morron,

* Cover gift boxes - Glue the wallpaper to the outside of a box to make a pretty gift box -- or -- use it to make your own boxes! If the wallpaper isn't heavy enough, glue two pieces back to back, or glue it to lightweight cardboard and then fold the box.

* Cut out clothes for paper dolls

* Make dollhouse rugs - Some patterns lend themselves well to tiny rugs - glue a fringe or lace edge on an oval or rectangular shape.

* Collage material - Let the kids cut out shapes and pictures for collages.

* Make greeting cards - Glue a piece of white paper to the back. Fold in half. Cut an oval in the center of the front of the card, and inside the card, glue something neat, a family photo, a jewel, etc. that will show through the oval.

* Decorate jar lids
