Advice on paper sizes please

Hello fellow Folksians,
I was wondering if you could help me out with regards to ‘how small is useful’ with regards to paper.

Having looked through my marbled paper stash, I’m considering putting together some mixed paper packs with different patterns etc. The pieces all vary in size up to A4 but I have a number of smaller pieces left over from trimming out faults.

What’s the smallest size that would be useful/acceptable to put in a pack? Business card size? I have some strips which aren’t very wide but are A6/A5 in length… I’m sure they’d be of use to someone (I tend to make jewellery pieces from them but I can’t keep it all!)

What do you think? Is A7 the smallest I should put in?

Why not do different sized packs - A4,A5,A6,A7 and mixed - you could put them as variations on a single listing and just see what sells. :slight_smile: I expect there are card makers (and other crafts) that could make use of the smaller sizes.

I’ve been thinking about something similar with my fabric pieces. I keep anything 1.5" and above, but I have lots of lovely smaller bits of fabric, various lengths. I know some people make necklaces from fabric bits, maybe I should give it a go.

@jessicagoulty I don’t actually do it myself but people who do paper quilling may be interested in long thin strips I believe they use 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" wide strips but long in length to roll up. So a strips bundle may be an idea☺

For card toppers you could put quite small if that helps? I often use offcuts of paper to layer up. If I was buying I would like mixed and anything bigger than than say 8cm x 8cm I would use :slight_smile:

Thanks for all your help guys, some things to think about.

Id forgotten about this thread and now I see it was last answered a week ago! Where does the time go! I’m hoping to get new stuff listed soon, but at this rate it’ll be the end of the year already!!
