If you store rolled paper (or anything rolled, really) vertically, put these caps on the top of each roll to protect from dust or whatever.
What can I do with the plastic caps from hairspray, funiture polish ec

Are they wide enough to use for storage of wires, needles, dowels, anything stiff and skinny?  I use something similar to store glass rods for beadmaking. 
What can I do with these? They're cardboard fax paper roll cores. They're thick, so they can't be bent.
I have a saw that I can chop them up.

glue rhinestones on the lenses, leaving gaps between the stones so you can see out.  BLING!!!

Thanks for the inspiration!

Q: What would you make with an old pair of sunglasses that are all scratched up?

What can I do with non-recyclable plastic bags and wrappings?  Including metallized plastic potato chip and coffee bags?  My area doesn't recycle most kinds of plastics, and it makes up at least 80% of my trash.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Shrunken chip bags for magnets, mosaics, dangles, ephemera...

I would also play around with fusing them either together, or onto a fabric or paper with parchment paper to protect your iron and surface to see if  you can make them into usable material for crafting with - like a more durable thicker material to make bags or a base for mixed media, or mats or something.
