I have a ton of old business cards that I hate to toss.   Any ideas on a way to utilize them??

You can use them for some really nifty origami folding.  Or make a bookmark.  Or put them all together and make a very small journal.

Aren't they the  same size as the ATC's? You could prime them and then make a series of your own Artist cards.

Do you make paper? They might make for some interesting paper depending on the texture/color of them.

If they are thick enough, they make great glue spreaders and/or paint and texture makers.

If you have any magnet business cards you can either peel off the image or just glue a photo over it. As a kid, my parents would always do this and our fridge is covered in family photos! Solves the problem of trying to find a magnet to hang up a photo when the magnet itself is one!

Another idea for old business cards (or any cards) is to chop em up for confetti.
