The Internet can be a great tool for finding ideas and new projects. One of my favorite resources is the Metal Clay Academy. I was peeking at it the other day and came across their beginners projects page.
Wow what a selection! There is a wide variety of awesome projects! The ideas and creativity are impressive. Here are just two if the as a sample but be sure to check out the link above.
paper clay project by Margaret Schindel. It caught my eye as I have paper clay that I have yet to weave. I love the illustrations provided. Add another project to the list of fun things to do!
Metal Clay Guru site, another great resource. I bought a bunch of Lava beads on sale. I haven't done much with them but I have prefired a bunch and have plans to attempt adding base metal clay to them...not sure if this will work but if I ever get around to it I will let you know.
