What can I do with these? They're cardboard fax paper roll cores. They're thick, so they can't be bent.
I have a saw that I can chop them up.
So far, I've used them for some little trees.Any ideas?

If you've ever seen the movie "Dinner for Schmucks" the character makes these dioramas with mice - they are so playful

Now I'm not saying use dead mice, but you can have a stuffed animal(s) or poseable miniature doll(s) that you can create little themed scenes that change, maybe each month. When people come to visit, it could be a conversation piece

I was trying to see what types of crafts you like to do - If you sew, you can cut them into squares for making a simple quilt and sew them raw edges out, snip the edges, and wash & dry with a tennis ball. the raw edges should fray and look like this:

The CD envelopes I have, have a window in them. I think it would be cool to  hot glue them or thumbtack them all edge to edge on a piece of cardboard or cork-type bulletin board with the windows facing out. Then you can tuck fun pics into each pouch or if you're a real keener, cut out silhouettes using black paper and tuck them into each one and still mount them for a vignette effect.

Cheers! ...Don't forget to post what you ended up doing

This thread has stalled a bit....

A: plastic cores from cash register rolls - I have OODLES of these!

The ends look cool like you could use them as stamped images, just dip them in paint or a stamp pad
if you're handy with a scroll saw or box cutter, you could slice them into little disks and use them to decorate things like
picture frames, various crafts
if you work with children, you can use them a big stringable "beads", just give them a shoelace to tie them together

If I come up with something else, I'll let ya know

Q:  What can I do with a bunch of plastic thread cones? They're about 5-6" tall and white

10  Re: APPLE CHIPS! *with tute!* in Recipes and Cooking Tips by seleniebeanie on: June 02, 2013 06:25:51 PM
This is interesting - I've been making them for 15 years now and do them a bit differently.

some things I found:
Granny smith (green apples) are too tart, so you'd need more sugar
removing the peelings is better because they become little hard bits for kids to get caught in their throat
Removing the core also for the above reason
145 degrees Celsius for 12 hours makes them awesomely crunchy
I start to make them about 6pm, when they're done in the morning, they're ready for school lunches
If the apples are fresh, you can speedily remove the peelings & core using a hand-cranked apple peeler (they're like $10)

I cut the apple into quarters, remove the core with a paring knife, then the outer peeling.
After doing 12-15 apples (I choose large apples) I then take each quarter and cut them into smaller slivers-each one makes 4-5
and put them in a bowl after doing a bunch, I'll sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon & sugar mixed-1 part cinnamon to 3 parts sugar
over them, stirring them around gently with a spatula or big spoon, until they all have a bit on them. then I lay them on the trays in circular rows. each tray holds about 3-4 apples worth of chips - more if the apples are smaller

Oh! they stay crunchy longer if you keep them in a glass jar- I reuse spaghetti sauce jars (since they can't be recycled here)
My local food bank LOVES it when I send them some. I usually make 8 jars worth each time because I have 8 trays (I've killed a dehydrator & reused the trays)
Here's what they look like:

Trust me - they are tasty..and VERY addictive! Let me know how you made out  - peace!  Smiley
