I want to recycle these old, whacked out board games I have.  We plan on screwing some of them to the ceiling and glueing pieces to the boards.  We also are planning on stiffening some boards and hanging them upside-down as plant hangers.  But what else??  I have LOT of games.  That only provides uses for about 1/2 of them.  Any ideas??

Also, I have a crap-ton of playing cards to mess with. But to use them, I need something BIG that will use a bunch of them at once.


Thanks crafty folks!

Use pages or covers as wallpaper, cover a corkboard, make spiral notebooks and use covers as the cover, use covers as postcards, laminate punch holes along the edge and crochet a trim then use as coaster/wall decor/etc., cut out certain words from the books and make word magnets/resin them for jewelry/stitch markers

Make jewelry/magnets/stitch markers/cell charms from the game peices

That's all I got for now.

What specific games are they?

Great ideas!  Thanks!

The games I put on the ceiling are:
Mork and Mindy Game
Simpsons Clue
Garfield Game
Monopoly

What I have let to mess with is:
Clue
Foreign Exchange game
Battleship
Trivial Pursuit (regular and a special edition version)
Ghosts
Masters of the Universe (He-man)

I have dropped the book request since yours was so thorough and replaced it with playing cards.  I have about a million different types: Porn, batman, donald duck and classic bicycle, to name a few.

Thanks again!
