10 Ways to Use Scrapbook Paper (That Aren't Scrapbooking)

It's been a while since I've made a scrapbook. College & sorority life (and the constant stream of photos that come with them) are a few years behind me, and I haven't had any major life moments that needed commemorating. Still, I have a ton of scrapbook paper and can't resist picking up more whenever I see a cute sheet or paper pack. I'm definitely going to use it for something at some point and I just really need it, ok? Sounds familiar, right?

So what are we going to do with all these pretty prints and patterns? I rounded up some projects from Blitsy and a few more from around the web that use scrapbook paper in ways you may never have even thought of. Take a look and get ready to be inspired!
