I recently hit a garage sale where a Mary Kay consultant was selling her stockpile of unused, new makeup for majorly cheap. I ended up getting about a dozen of the little eyeshadows. (the old kind, not the new magnetic kind) ANYWAY they have little clear plastic U-shaped covers. I am sure those have a use for them somewhere.
Can anyone come up with some ideas?

I  have a couple of these Im saving for crafting too! I think of little windows or doors to a very small castle! Maybe you can build a miniture church around them or something?
Or how about cleaning them off really good and decorating a cake with them?
They also look like little tombstones...how about a little graveyard?
Or they could be fish scales!
Or little arches in ancient ruins!
Maybe you could connect the 2 parts with paper a make a little book?
Of course you can always line them up and glue them together to make a small tray to oranize your beads and such!
good luck! Smiley

I use little things like that to hold small amounts of paint when I'm painting a craft project.

They'd make GREAT doors for little row houses. (Maybe you and I should arrange a private swap...  Grin) Or, covered with paint or fabric, they can serve as uniquely shaped buttons for a jacket or purse (you'd have to sew a shank on the back, or drill holes through the plastic). Same thing for jewelry - if you have a way to drill a small hole through one end, you can paint them and string them together on a necklace.
