I have a ton of them and I know they have some great crafty use I just haven't found it yet. Any suggestions?

garbage pail kids cards! how cool!

you should make a bag like this:


that was made from these rad "perfect match" cards I had which were meant to be used for some sort of demented game of memory.
I'm sure there's really great tutorials on here somewhere from how to make a bag out of playing cards (essentially the same thing) but how I did it was lined them up and covered with clear contact paper in rectangles for the front and back panels. Then sewed the fabric sides and bottom directly through the contact paper. But simply using clear packing tape without any fabric is probably way easier.

hmmmm.... wasn't there some hanging lantern-type object that was a featured project a while ago? It was made of spanish alphabet cards, I think. Huh

If they are the original ones from like the 80's  - you do know they are collectibles, right?  Not to spoil a cool crafty venture - but the fundage that you could yield from selling them on Ebay could fund a lot  more projects than just using the cards...

I know, I am being a wet blanket... but oh my god, those things are worth some money.  My brother is still peaved at his teacher for confiscating his and not returning them! - yeah, 15 years later he is still complaining about it...

hmm. i didn't start any craft project with them yet...

I didn't realize they were collectables. They were my brothers (now 28)  and he was gonna trow them out but I knew they'd be good for something  Grin. I have probably 300 of them, I think I'll try selling them on ebay. I knew my pack rat tendencies would pay off! Thanks for letting me know!!

Wow.  You might want to check out Ebay - and if you really really want to make something with garbage pail kids, just pick up a new pack from Walmart.. those old ones are actually in demand - you know how some people get sentimental then they skyrocket in price.

Best of luck on the auction..!
