Unfortunatly, no.  We have our reports printed and bound by a different company and shipped to us.  :/

Cut and flatten the pieces of the cups (maybe using some parchment paper and a heat gun if weight alone won't flatten it) and use it for a notebook cover like this:

What can I do with a small, rusty cast-iron frying pan?

You could decorate the outside of the box and then make tiny handmade playing cards to put inside.

If you could clean them very, very well I would suggest decorating the outside of them with either paint, decoupage magazine clippings, tissue paper or very thin slices of polymer clay canes (see the PC boards for ideas on that) and then fill them with homemade loose-leaf tea blends or fresh-baked granola and give them as gifts.
It's never too early to start preparing for the holidays, right?   Cheesy haha

Do you remember those candy buttons that came on strips of paper?
You could fashion a bracelet that looks like that with the wax.
Use bubble wrap as the mold by piercing the back instead of the bubble part and use a tiny dropper to fill the bubble with melted wax (or maybe there's an easier way to do this...)
Then when the wax is dry, remove the wrapping and glue the wax buttons to some white muslin in rows grouped by color.

Wow, holy potatoes, I LOVE the one with the birds & beads and the paper crane one!!
The beads is so clever and whimsical (and I'm not just saying that because I love saying 'whimsical')

Put a bird on it! Hehe

I can't see the second two pictures but the first one looks fun!

My coworkers charged me with separating all the papers from the plastic comb bindings on our old financial statements so that we could recycle the old reports. 
This left me with tons and tons of these awesome jobbies to play with and make....well I have absolutely no idea.  I've tried making a wreath out of them (looked super lame).
Then I mulled over the thought of using them for their intended purpose by making little journals, but the machine to punch those weird rectangular holes through the papers is not exactly budget friendly when you're as broke as me.  Undecided
Any ideas?  I've got probably around 150 of them, some black and some white.
