WOW thanks everyone Grin I just love craftster  Smiley where else in the world could I have asked that question and got so many imaginative ideas!
Phone bugs, wallets, plushes, placemats, windchimes and Jewellery, I never would have thought of any of these, I love them all and certainly have enough fascias to try them all out, now to decide which to try first Roll Eyes

it'd make a good challenge ...'craftsters were given phone fascias and here's what they came up with...'

Where they came from...  My son had a Saturday job in a phone shop, the manager sold him the box of fascias, -basically i think they were for an older style phone and they weren't selling, I think No1 son thought he was going to sell them at a big profit, he might have sold a few (1 would have been better than nothing lol) on Ebay but he didn't get round to it quick enough at all, So they ended up in my hands! - I couldn't let them go to land fill, I arranged for the local scrap charity to collect them but they never turned up... so 6 months later they're still in my hands!

If you can cut some of the ones with smaller screen openings, you could make it into a belt buckle.

Or someone suggested tampon case. That would be awesome if you covered the openings from the inside with fabric or vinyl or something so no one could see 'em. XD Actually, it would probably be cool with the keypad in there and black vinyl on the screen. A tampon case disguised as a cell phone!

Hey, that's a cool idea, I've tried several ideas so far and failed in all!!
I glued the key bads to a backing to make a belt but the pads don't stick to glue gun glue! and I tried making beads out of the numbers but it that didn't work either!!

not sure if anyone has said this but you could cut the individual keys out and string them together to make jewelry

i would make a purse out of the fascias!
Not just a pouch but a big purse Shocked
pick out ones with crazy patterns sew them together or use a strong adhesive then add a lining.
I was also going to suggest jewelry what about using a full keyboard for a pendant?

Edit- Sorry i didn't even notice how old this thread was i keep digging up old threads lately! oops.  Sad

Those fascias look like little cars to me.  You could find a way to attach something to be wheels (buttons, etc) and make them into toy cars for little kids.  They would be cool.   You could also link some of them together to make a toy train.

I too am interested to see what you finally come up with.  Where did you get 100 of them?!

Put them on a baking sheet on a low temp in the over for a few minutes all in a line, then once they're floppy like pancakes, take them out, put another baking sheet on top and then books on top of that and wait a while, then you've got a flat sheet of plastic with loads of pretty colors that you could re-melt to bend into a bowl or a plate or you could use it as a placemat or something

That's what I would do, anyway (:

How about a funky cake decoration...

Or attach the faces to a block (cut to size) you've got a kids' play phone...

Or (expanding out liza.lu's idea) make little toy boats. You's just need to fill the gaps with something.

What about using the fascia pieces as little photo frames? Cut the bottom part off and sand it smooth, or use the key pieces cut out to spell names or a slogan under the pictures.
