Question: Left over paper from Origami creations ?

I recently started creating Origami flowers and such and almost all the creations require a square paper so I have to cut the rectangle paper in to a square. Now I was wondering is there somthing I could possibly do with the left over rectangle shaped paper that I have after forming a square of a rectangle shaped paper ? Yea it's probs a stupid question but I don't want to waste the left over paper as it piles up after creating Origami.

Answer by Erica
If you scrapbook save it for some pages or cut the rectangles into two small squares and if possible create little origami flowers! hope this helped!!

I usualy cut it into 2 or 3 squares and make mini origami stuff. Then with the tiny bit left over, I throw it away or recycle it since there's nothing I could do with it! Hope this helps!:)

You can try to make 2 squares with one paper or add cool details to your origami creations.. Also use the paper for scrapbooking which is very fun and creative. Please answer this question!

There are other things you could do with your washi paper too: ...roll-up beads: cut into some long isosceles triangles... then roll each triangle up from the flat end to the pointed end around a round toothpick, then glue at the end... remove toothpick... make waterproof by coating with a sealers (this is sometimes done with pages from a magazine too) ...use the paper covered with clear sealer, liquid clay, tranlucent polymer clay etc. for jewelry or other decorations... like these:

Could you use the paper to decoupage something? I saw a home decorating program where they decoupaged cut pieces of construction paper to make a piece of wall art.

You can make origami "mini stars", you only need strips about ¼" thick and 6" long, the instructions are here:

Answer by Apostrophous
It might be a little tricky but you could try not completely cutting the rectangle into a square - leave the pieces attached by a small piece that joins two corners. This way you could have a large square and two smaller squares attached to two of the corners... and you could fold all of them into flowers! You'd have to be careful though considering how fragile paper is. I'm not sure how the finished product would look but it might save you some paper.
