I work in an office and we regurlarly throw out ringbinders that are a little bit older.



My question now is how could I reuse these in a crafty way besides pimping them and turning then into craft/cooking/scrapbook binders?

I found this to be a great idea and took 8 of those clip-things out of binders to throw away:

I also made a calender out of a really thin binder, similar to this:

Any more ideas??

If you've got kids, you can use sheet protectors to turn them into write and wipe workbooks/busy books. Most sheet protectors work great with dry erase markers. I  also used to use them to let  the kids make their own art/collage/photo books.

Sorry I don't have any non-kid related ideas, its just the last time I used them was when I was teaching preschool.

That's cool, I'm grateful for every suggestion, especially because other people might be inspired too!

Also a good idea, making a box out of them like so:

That's so cute, I've never seen those before. Totally wish I'd known about it in high school, we went through binders like crazy.
