I have over a dozen decks of cards...my brother used to collect them, and somehow I got stuck with them when we moved...what can I do with them?  There's only so many paper craft things you can add decks of cards to...

link them together.  Make strings of cards single-wide and use a bunch for a curtain, or link together all four sides to make "fabric" and use it for..
place mats
a dress or vest
a curtain
a wall hanging

or learn to play "Hand and Foot"  it takes six decks of cards for four people.

I use the ace/king/queen and jack and my circle cutter and make 1 inch pin back buttons with them.

I also use them as price tags for the items I seel and craft fairs.

Mini picture mattes?

Hot glue for a permenant House of cards?

bind them for mini note books?

Lamp shade? Either link together and make a frame from thick wire and an o-ring (to go around the base of the light bulb) or paste over an existing ugly shade.

Perfect for ATCs. Do some ATC swaps. Lots of swaps on Swap Bot. Or see if you can swap them out in trade for other craft items.

My husband uses them when he paints peoples rims.  Just shove them in the space between the tire and the rim and it's instant masking with out the work.  Maybe that would work for some other kind of painting too??

I stumbled across this just the other day on youtube and thought it was a cute idea.

On tv once I saw a room they had painted a navy blue and then fanned the cards out and glued them to the walls to make a border... it looked awesome! Then on the floor they just randomly spread the cards out and clear coated on top to seal it! It was pretty neat and IF I didnt rent I would totally do this to my kitchen floor lol

Once upon a time a girl named Indigo played with her Gran's sewing machine... the rest is fabric hoarding, sewing addicting history!

A lamp ? Maybe you could use them to make a whole bunch of little notepads with paper inside ?

First of all, I'm jealous! lol  Tongue
1.Jewelry- You could cut them up, put holes in them and connect them together with jump rings. Or maybe cut them up and encase them in resin? Glue them to something sturdy like wood or dominoes?
2. Lamp- I love the lamp idea  srtongberrry mentioned! You can attatch them using the hole/jumpring method and make a lampshade.
3. Purse/tote bag- You could glue, use jumprings, or sew them on.
4. Paper boxes- fold, glue, or sew together?
5. Mini books/notepads- Like a spiral notepad or something.
6. A wallet maybe?
7. Covering a wood or plastic box or wall- Like wallpaper?
8. If you have a business like an Etsy shop you could use them as recycled business cards or earring cards.
9. Art- Cut them up and make a collage.
10. Use them as a frame for artwork or photos or use them instead of matting board before framing.

I could come up with more later. lol
