After cutting the paper for my DIY pocketfolds (http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-pocketfold-1?replies=12#post-484334), I am left with these scraps:
The teeny ones I’m willing to just throw away if I can’t think of anything for them. The middle size is 10.5″ x 2″ (about 50). The biggest size is 11″x2.5″ (180 total).
Any cool ideas?

do you scrapbook? I am saving mine for that.
Other than that I have no idea.
Can you use them someplace else in your wedding? IE to mat escort cards? Note cards?
Rip them up with other paper to make your own recycled paper

Make stars with the skinny ones, or those “turtles” or triangles. I used to make them when I was a kid, it’s like origami pebbles, you put them in a dish and it looks cute on the bottom.

My friend used to make these stars by the jarful. They’re great for leftover strips of paper (you’d need to cut the medium and large ones into some thinner strips).

I used my leftover paper to make photocards that had our info for guests to download their digital photos to a website! Or maybe you could make favor bookmarks with your names and dates!

I might be able to use the bigger strips for a backing on our photobooth information cards (our photobooth is being run by our photographer so it’ll have his website info so guests can see the pics after). Those will be printed on white so that might work.
I technically don’t really scrapbook…I make some cards here and there but I don’t really see me using this paper for much with that either. It will go in my scrap paper container just FOR that purpose, if I don’t find something wedding-related to use it for.
However I really wanna use it for wedding stuff! Any other fun projects?
@linguo42: Thanks for the idea! I will try some of those!

You guys are way more creative than me. I thought about one of those paper chains, LOL!

Cut them into little bits and use them for confetti!

If you are really ambitious, google “Martha Stewart’s paper peionies.” I saw the tutorial and don’t think I’d be able to be sane to go through it, but maybe you have more ambition then I do!

Have you made/bought thank-you notes yet? You could get a lighter colored cardstock and glue strips of your leftovers on them for fancy, homemade thank yous!
