i might try making one of these. when not in use you could dress it up in your clothes! lol. better than piling them on the floor or squashing them into limited drawer space, which is what happens to mine when they're not in the washing basket.

have you measured it to see if it's accurate?

i really wouldn't recommend taking apart a tv unless you know what you're doing.

i think that taking apart televisions is one of those things that the more you know about it, the less likely you are to do it.

i would try to obtain an empty case, like the guy to whom ecinue88 refers has done with his mac. let someone else do the dangerous part.

if i were going to attempt taking a tv apart i would take it in to one of the lab technicians at my uni and try to blag a favour. i suggest you do something similar.

yesterday i did a search for "plastic bags" because we have millions of them.
it occurs to me that some of the straw placemats we had when i was a kid were a bit like the plastic bag crochet fabric of this bag


you could quite easily make a double crochet (US: single crochet) circle of whatever size you like, to make coasters, placemats, i guess doormats too.
it's recycling, and if they got too mucky you could just do new ones - if you are anything like me you have an unlimited supply of shopping bags.

if you can't crochet, i assure you it is very simple to learn.

picture frames would make nice gifts. if you have loads then i suppose making gifts with it would be a good way to use it.

you could do mosaics with it.
if you have a drill with a suitable bit you could make them into beads.

if you have no pictures to put in picture frames, you could do the same thing but with mirrors.
you can often get picture frames and mirrors for cheap in pound shops, charity shops, markets etc. it'd be a good way of brightening up those frames that are just a sheet of glass clipped to a board.

you could just glue it all to a big painted board and hang it on the wall as a piece of modern art.

i overheard a woman once talking about a patchwork scarf she had made out of her husband's old ties.

slice down them and use them to keep cables tidy?

my limited experience of gerbils is that you can fill the entire cage with cardboard tubes and they will still all be gone by the morning, so if you know anyone else who has gerbils you could give them your cardboard tubes.
if not, recycle them.
