OK i know this is going to sound WAAAAAY out there.....but maybe make a craft bin using them!  i thought of this the other day using welcome mats, place a thin peice of plywood inbetween two and glued together (something strong obviously not sure what tho) do this for all sides and if you want cut them down to make a difference size.make two more for bottom and a top.  attach hinges on one side and to the top cover (if you want a cover) . sorry if my explanation wasnt very good. pm me and ill try to give more detailed instructions.
just..basically make a box with wood and cover the wood with the placemats. cover if you want.
random idea i know but i think it might actually look kinda cute and very unique while also being functional!
