Paperlicious!

Paper is a versatile material with many uses, but it's not limited to writing, printing, drawing or packaging. It can also be used to make beautiful things to decorate your home with. These lovely vignettes shot by talented Dutch photographer Hotze Eisma will give you a few clever ideas on how to give this ancient material alternative uses. For instance, you can create a one-of-a-kind pendant lamp for your dining room by applying torn sheets of white glossy paper on a wicker basket, and complete the whole story by using brown packing paper as a table runner.

Are you in need of something unexpected for your wall? Randomly place paper plates of various shapes and hues and create a dynamic collage/artwork for it.  

If you're a neat freak like me, store all your loose items in fun glass jars and use scrap pieces of paper to make oversized labels for the jars. 

How about creating a fantasy blooming tree by arranging several flower pompoms made of semitransparent tissue paper on a branch? It can be a rather graceful piece in a room.

If you're dying to add some interest to a boring wall in your home, and don't want to spend much money on the project, how about using sheets newspapers as wallpaper? You can get creative by finding newspapers from other countries with beautiful typography and fun graphics instead of using your local paper.
