need some DIY ideas

so I bought a crapload of this computer paper simply because it has a damask pattern on it, and now I have NO IDEA what to do with it!  It's standard 8.5"x11" size and I have about 600 sheets of it. 


I'm not doing menus or table numbers, and I wasnt planning on doing programs - so I'm stuck!  Any ideas???


TIA!


so I bought a photo 69943-1

I am using Damask bordered paper to go in frames I need for things like...  Placecard frame "Please Find your seat here" bathroom basket poem, photobooth directions, etc.


What are you doing for tables numbers???

Wow, my first thoughts were table numbers and menus. HMM's suggestions for random signage is great. If you really can't find any use for it, I'd save it for later... or sell it. I'm sure a bride using damask in her wedding could use it.


Good luck!

HMM  - great ideas.  It will not use more than 10 pages of the pack or so, but those would be great uses.


Menus are really simple to make as are basic programs, which are nice to have.  Maybe you can get someone else to format and copy something like that for you.


Is there are way to somehow use these in your thank you notes?  You could glue these to the inside of cardstock, fold the cardstock in half and put your picture on the front and write the note on the inside.


At the same time, don't feel pressured to use it if there is nowhere that you want to do so.  I am pretty sure you won't have a hard time selling a pack of this paper.

Great ideas ladies!  I bought it at the dollar store so it didn't really cost that much, I just hate going overboard on buying stuff and then not be able to use it - kwim?


I wasn't going to do table numbers, but I do have a poem that I would like to incorporate into our ceremony - maybe I'll print the poem and frame it on each table? Maybe use some as programs? Or double them and fold them into fans?


I wish it was square - then I would maybe make those origami -fortune-telling-thingies (can't think of the name of them) that we used to play as kids.

Also- maybe use them at your shower or b-party??? 


My sister did something similiar at mine for our menu by the buffet and used the paper for some of our games....?


You could also use them for 'letter' like thank yous? Give them to your BP at the rehearsal dinner, etc?


Or even make your 'bridesmaids' newsletters with them?

I used this same paper for our wedding day schedule for all the family & wedding party.  I like your idea about the poem for the tables too.
