Three creative uses for black and white copies

October 24, 2017 · Print This Article

Bulk black and white copies aren’t just for office documents and school worksheets. There are tons of creative things you can do with a few hundred copies of one black and white document.

Being limited to black and white needn’t hold you back. Here are three interesting ways to use bulk black and white copies:

  1. Send out an origami invitation
    Invitations for parties and other events can look really interesting, but they’re usually discarded after the first glance. Do something different with the flyer you’re handing out without spending the money on full-colour printing. Origami patterns are fun and full of crafty charm. A crane is always a good idea, or even a simple paper jet for a lasting impression.
  2. Create your own custom snowflake cut-outs for the holidays
    You can easily download a whole range of really fun snowflake designs off the Internet. Then simply print one out, get some black and white copies done and get snipping! String them together for some cute holiday decorations. Cheap and cheerful!
  3. Update a writing desk with a twist
    A creative way to update a piece of furniture like a writing desk or a bookshelf is to decoupage it with pages from classic novels like F.Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby or Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. But don’t go ripping up your collection. Just get some black and white copies of some of the pages and cover your furniture in the words of some of the greatest literature ever written. Decoupage is a fun and a pretty easy craft to do, plus it’s simple to find step-by-step instructions online.
