Wallpaper Extravaganza

This is a call for ideas!
I'm working on an historical renovation of a building in Downtown Dallas with my architecture firm, and the other day on a "field verification" outing I found some treasures that were getting ready to be thrown out...

The big pieces were a mid-century credenza and double-chair-loveseat type thing, but the more interesting thing that I need help with is an overabundance of kitchy 50's-60's wallpaper that I took off the walls. It is great-- ridiculous bright design, flocked gold, etc. The only problem is that NOW I have rolls and rolls of reclaimed wallpaper and nothing to do with it. I've thought of framing some as art, making placemats, and that's pretty much it. Any ideas~?!?!

Above is a little snippit of my favorite. I'll post the rest later on this weekend.

I'd make funky envelopes out of the wallpaper and prolly use some for wrapping paper...

Depends how much of a craft type you are but how about covering plain journals, pen-pots, scrap books, letter racks, waste paper bins, pin boards, laminate small strips as bookmarks .... retro-kitsch has major appeal over here. Check out ebay for ideas and to see what sells. I am doing same with retro cowgirl stuff, a fun hobby that I hope becomes a business one day.
