I have a habit of taking too many photos. Here's an idea of what you can do with extra photos. Try using them as post cards to send to loved ones. They will appreciate seeing this personalization from you and it helps to keep your photo storage down.

The ones that don't come out too clear, can also be used for bookmarks...just cut into 2" strips. The library appreciates bookmark donations and this is one that is popular with the kids.

Another idea is to use the extra photo's and cut into shapes, decoupage onto boxes.

Okay...another...make scrapbook design greeting cards.

Great Topic! I'm one that just hates to toss things when I think there might be a good use for them.

Use for drawer liners--arrrange in a pleasant way and cover with clear contact paper.

Make placemats for gifts or everyday use by sandwiching them between two sheets of clear contact paper.

Hello, I own a scrapbooking store in South Florida and we sometimes use extra photos even the not so good ones for back ground. We use the sizzix machine and pop out letter to make titles on our pages. Best of Luck to you!
