I've seen a clock made with them too.  They dice were used as the numbers, and obviously after 6, two were used, but it looked really neat.

you could attach thumbtacks to them and use them on a bulletin board.

Yeah, there was a clock made with dominoes in the Let Me Make Your Craft swap that was posted a little while ago. I just LOVE that idea.

if you have 20-sided dice, you won't need to use two for a clock b/c it goes up to 20 Smiley I just checked my boyfriend's stash of D&D dice  Grin do you think he'd notice if I stole a few?

jessicakes - look at what yur crafting addiction has done to you!  It has you stealing craft supplies from those you love.  Oops, I'd love to type more but I am raiding my husband closet for tees to reconstruct for me!

How about using them as draw pulls, or zipper pulls?  Or pretend they are buiding blocks and glue them into weird building shapes?  Since you have a ton of them, maybe you could glue them into box shapes and use them as desk accessories like a pencil holder, paper clip box etc.

When I read your original post my only thought was:  Use them to "tile" an end table.  I'm not sure how that would work for grouting etc, but it would look pretty interesting I think!

BTW the side discussion about correct word usage is really interesting too!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Glue them on as a handle on top of a box.

All I can think of right now is earrings and maybe make mod wall art with the checkers. I'll post more later if my brain is working!

*My ideas
-I think that if 'napkins' can be, basically decpauged, to the dominoes that so can any other paper or fabric.
