That's quite a hard one to help with! I donate ours to a DD for hamster bedding and recycle the rest. I suppose you could put it in a bucket with water and paint and make paper mache or use it to stuff a snake (a door bung/anti draught thingy) You could mix it with PVA and mould it into shapes for making a sculpture, or use it to add texture to a paper or fabric base whilst wet (or when dried it might stitch onto fabric well) You could then gesso, repaint, and add antiquing wax? Any good?

Have you seen the paper beads on my blog and the link to the original post. They are made from newspaper but I am sure any paper would work.

Wow. West country Buddha has some great ideas! Annette and I have used it to make the pulp for hand made paper.

I took a class from Nellie, where you cut up bits of scraps and covered your batting. Then you put tulle netting over it and quilt it. Suppose you could use scraps of paper under the netting too.

You could soak it overnight then liquidise it then make sheets of paper or drip the pulp over knitted wireto make an armatoire type of item, Magstitch`s blog had some from a show.
