A "fool the eye" bookcase made from wallpaper borders.
Approximate Time: Two hours or less
Depending on the size you want your bookcase, cut the border featuring books into pieces of equal length.
For the "shelves", cut the wood grain border into narrow strips.
Glue the book strips to the wall with the shelving strips in between.
For the casing, measure wider pieces of wood grain border and cut to fit, mitering the corners so as to look like woodwork.

At most dollar stores, I can buy wallpaper borders. I apply it to a tin can to match the decor. I have one on my end-table with pencils, pens, scissors, and whatnots. In the bathroom, it holds razors, toothbrush, comb, and tweezers.
Cut pictures out of wallpaper borders and apply to walls or garbage cans (wherever you want) to spice up your rooms. I sponged blue over white walls in my bathroom and cut fish out of a wallpaper border to create an underwater scene. Very cute and easy as the border is already pre-pasted.

Also, line shelves with it, make envelopes by using a premade one for a pattern, always keep some for repairing, party invitations, scrapbooking, depending on what the pattern is you can make border from a roll by cutting it with a power saw into the width of border you want. I have done this many times by buying a discounted roll, using my electric miter saw I hold it against the brace and cut the length of the needed border. You can get several lengths of border from one roll. Fancy cut one edge with scissors if you like.
