I have a box of over 1 hundred plastic mobile phone fascias (measuring approx 4 x 1.75 inch) and i can't think of a use for them!!  -I bet you can't either! Grin ...or can you?



These are the number keypads (2 x 1.5 inch) and yes I have over 1 hundred of these too! Grin ..part of me thinks i could sew these together to make a little bag ... and part of me thinks I must be mad!



Any ideas???  Smiley
...please!

For the fascias maybe mini shrines? belt buckles? world's smallest puppet theatre?!

The fascias would make wonderful wirey insects. They'd be the perfect bodies and you could use bright wire to make the legs and antenna. Little phone bugs! Cheesy

I think your bag idea for the keypads is great!

I would use the fascias as wallets for change (you would have to close all the openings with clear vinyl or just the keypads and make it click open on one side) or as a tampon case or something.
You could also make (Cell)phone plushies out of fabric and use the real keypads.

Do you think the keypads would stand up to being walked on? They'd make a really cool doormat if you glue a bunch of them onto a base of some kind. Or placemats! For the faces, I love the idea of making a curtain out of them. Or a wind chime!

Ooo, I like that idea!
Also, where in the world did you get these?

The key pads would be cute if you could cut the numbers out and string them like beads to make jewelry. 
what an interesting find, I am curious as to what you will finally do with them

I bet the facias could be melted to make night light covers.  The keys could be used for jewelry.  Or you could send the number to me Grin so I can make a number themed Altoids tin as a learning tool for DD.  I already did a spelling one for her and can't find number beads.  Seriously, I would love to help you use one or two of the 100 you have.

Here's the spelling tin in progress:
