can you decoupage with it?  A table or dresser or storage crate?

Cut pieces out and use in altered books or other artwork?

Are they empty? Can you post a picture of them?

Thank you for sharing this....I kinda think I would like to try an altered book, but when I sat down with one in my hot little hands I drew a total blank as to what to do to/with it!!! Your spreads are helping my sort out what I might try.  Thanks for sharing your lovely work!!

Connect them together with decorative hinges?

Use them as covers for journals/scrapbooks/photo albums?

Christmas gifts?

browse through the forum on papercrafts, especially the recycled projects.  Also, the jewelry making crowd sometime has great projects using pics or parts of pages.

You could still make book purses if you made a (book)cover for them---very retro!: think about middle school--reading the latest "naughty" book with a paper cover you crafted yourself!!!  Or graft on a cover from a "crotch novel" --err, formula romance novel I mean!

Try shredding some pages to make new paper. (after grabbing any cool pics first, of course!)

Do these suggestions give you any good ideas?
(and I agree--I hate to see these trashed, but then their sheer enormity is paralyzing when trying to think crafty!)

Church rummage sales often have hand knitted or crocheted items that can be unstitched for yarn.

Just ask--friends family co-workers.  If you are in need of whatever, just spread the word.  Usually it won't be long till you are swimming in widgets or whatever you need!

A bowlful on a table would make a pretty decoration.

CAn you paint them (dry 'em out first)
Use for game markers?

CAn you drill a hole through them and use them like beads?

Press into slightly softened candles?

crochet covers or use fabric to recover for baby blocks. (remove hanging strings of course)

Glue pictures on each side for a photo cube (you could combine the two ideas by printing photos on fabric---would make a neat personalized idea fopr a baby/shower gift!)

Drive them into a barn wall to use for a peg hook?
solder something on top for yard art?
Drive into a tree to hang stuff on?

Carry one in your purse to slug a would-be assailant alongside the head?  Okay, I'm just being silly now!  Let us know what you decide to do with them.
