I have a ton of these, since I just got new curtains for the office, and redid my room.
Any ideas on what to use them for or how to spiff them up?

The bedsheets I recently bought came in those zippered vinyl pouches, and I use them to store WIPs in, especially my knitting.  That way I just throw the vinyl bag in my (very much stuffed!) tote bag and don't have to worry about the yarn tangling up in eveything or the project unraveling.

ooohhh I never thought of that. I was thinking I could take off the zipper and use the vinyl as a protctive layer for makeup bakgs. If that makes sense.

If it's the kind of vinyl that will stick to itself a little you can cut it up into little rectangles and wrap them around your spools of thread.  It will keep the thread from coming loose and getting tangled but still allow you to see the color.  I use a rotary cutter to make long strips in two or three different widths that match the height of the most typical spools of thread.  Then I wrap a strip around a spool of thread about 1 1/2 times, cut off the remainder with a pair of scissors, and move on to the next spool.
