I've been hoarding all those fake credit cards that keep coming in the mail for months now with nothing definite in mind to make from them.  I hadn't made any books in a while, so I figured, why not make teensy little notebooks?

That's such a great idea! I think I might have to do that with all the extra ones lying around!

That's a really clever way to use up those things! I find myself saving them for some odd reason... Now I have an idea of what to do with them!

You could also paint/alter/cover the cards themselves, I guess, but I like that you left them raw.

Cool!

that's a great idea!  they could be used to record purchases made on your credit/debit card... super cute.  wishing I hadn't thrown them out now!

I would use them in my purse, but I already have a larger moleskine book in there (I'm a writer, too, so I tend to have lots of things to write when I'm out and about), so these are going on my Etsy shop for the time being.

those are cute!  When I saw the thread title, though, I was worried you were using real credit cards!  That would not be cute! :-)
