what would you do with these? they are small plastic tops from the medications we use. I LOVE them, I collect them at work (I'm a nurse in the ER) and here are my ideas:

barrettes
jewelry (earrings, bracelets)
magnets
pony tail binders
cards (glued on to drawings)
t-shirts (sewn on to drawings)

I just bookmarked you because I'm diabetic and have saved everyone for the last 24 years.  Can't wait to see what inspiring things you come up with.  I think since they represent shots to me I have a bit of a mental block...

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

They look like garnment buttons, do they have a hole?

no, my biggest issue is getting a hole in them. if I am VERY careful I can nail a hole w/o shattering them, but too much force and they break apart. I can use a hot needle, but it leaves that nasty black mark. so I am going to look for a little drill bit to try to use this week

You could glue them to a large canvas in like  swirls or something.  I think they would make a great polka dotted piece of art.

I definitely agree with the art thing!  Imagine the really neat picture you can create with these?!

Okay, these little things have given me an idea - pixel art - google it - there's software that will take a picture & turn it into pixel dots. I'm psyched - I'm going to do it with lego! Here's a fun pic using rubic's cubes as pixel art:

You could glue them to strings or ribbons and make a curtain.

wow! you really did an awesome job on those! I would never guess that those backing things were formerly medicine pop tops. I like your images you put on them too. Keep on making more!
