This looks great!
It would make a great light fixture for a restaurant.

Hey - I'm from RePlayGround! Glad to see the wallet in use! Happy recycling!

You could cut notches into each side and connect them together like House of Cards (a 3D puzzle).

I made some into earrings and necklaces. I gave them away for Christmas presents and sold them at a local craft fair. People kept wanting them to light up, but I'm not that technologically advanced. I thought the low-tech version was much simpler anyway.

Just take a tack and push it through the plastic at the top. Then slide a 3" piece of metal wire through the hole. Loop the wire around and wrap it back onto itself. It should be good to either attach to a French hook or loop onto a necklace.

Maybe drill holes in the top and use as salt and pepper shakers.

They should be secure enough to keep the spices in, without coming out the sides.

Is the inside of the box blank?

You could cut them up into 4 x 6 cards and use them as postcards.

A great way to reuse and also spread the Girl Scout word.

Samoas were always my favorite.
Thin Mints were a close second.

Or here's another more advanced idea for old soda / water bottles:

This is an awesome idea!

I've seen a similar idea where the top of glass bottles are cut off and flipped over, similar to this - to make a drinking goblet.

Since this is plastic it's a much more manageable version that anyone can make - without needing heavy flame.

Soda bottles / water bottles are also a good material to work with because they're usually so plentiful.

Here's an idea to take a clean and empty soda bottle, cut it off at the top, punch holes around rim, and thread ribbon around it. You can also forego the ribbon, for a less frilly version.
The little compartments at the bottom of the bottle make a good spot to hold various household supplies - like paperclips, safety pins, etc. Or you could use it as a candy dish. Soda is usually full of sugar anyway. Why not fill it back up with sugar?

Here are more detailed instructions:

Love the wallpaper idea.

You could also tear out some of the pages and cover a small jewelry box by gluing it on.

Or make the pages into small envelopes. Take a small envelope that you got in the mail, unfold it and use that as a template. Trace around it, fold it back up and tape together.
Mail a message to your favorite comic in your favorite comic.
