Sheeshoo, I love the idea of making your own stepping stones using the pizza boxes as molds.  I have a favorite plate that got a big ol' crack in it and it would be nice to try setting bits of that into a stepping stone.

That mouth is too funny. Good job and good for you to see the possibilities.

I think the bottle cap is a really good idea to keep the pins from going through. This is now on my to do list. Thanks.

You can roll up a several inch long piece  to make a tassel. Put the ends of a folded-over hanging cord on the band part, with the loop going the opposite way from the fringe. Use a little hot glue or fabric glue to hold things together as you roll.

I used a similar container (pale purple, shower gel) to make a little dangly thing that hangs in some bamboo in my yard and dances and twirls in the wind.
First I cut rectangle and square shapes, plus one heart shape for the end -- it cuts very easily -- then punched holes in opposite ends on rectangles, corners on squares and only one hole in the heart.   Attached the heart to the middle of some cording and then strung beads and the squares and rectangles along the rest of the cord. I had to kind of fuss with it to get to hang the way I wanted.  Tied the ends together and hung it in the bamboo.  It's been there about a year and I haven't had any problems with it deteriorating.
I still have the pretty purple top.  Haven't figured out what to do with that yet.

Goddess, how do you make dollhouses out of chopsticks? Log cabin style? As frames for shoji screens?

Still don't know where I saw this, but above suggested craftster thread is much cooler than I remember.

Sorry I don't remember where I saw this.
Cut off the bottom and the handles of the plastic bags, so you have a tube.  Cut into the tube at a shallow angle until you have a strip about 1 inch wide. Continue cutting at about 1 inch width moving round and round the plastic bag tube in a spiral until you come to the other end.  
Use this long strip (combined with others) to crochet with.
If I remember, the person I saw crocheted bags with the plastic bag strips.

I think it would be fun to try artsy_pants tape measure bowl and then glue the erasers around the rim.
