Wallpaper Crafts

More durable than scrapbook or wrapping paper, wallpaper is ideal for DIY projects. It’s tear-resistant, with a coated surface that wipes clean with a damp rag. You can order samples of wallpaper in sizes 8” x 10” or even 20” x 20”, which is enough to craft many of these projects.
