I'm so tempted to go out and buy a million of these packs of gum because I LOVE the packaging!  Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do with these?  They are a little smaller than the trident or dentine ice packages but a little thicker.  Here are some images (yes with craftster in the background!)

Are they the right size to make them into business card holders?
You could cover the outside in pretty paper or fabric.

Hold your inchies in them

Hold change in them (I've done that before Smiley )

Use them to make inchies

Condom holder for you or friends

If I think of any more ideas I'll be back

Getting my life together. Going to have to take a break from Craftster for a bit.

I'm liking the ideas so far!  I'd have to paint it or coat it in fabric to reinforce it a little.  If I'm going to use it for anything in my purse, it's going to need to be tough because my purse beats things up

A little note pad.  You could cut up little pieces of paper and put then inside.  I'm pretty sure one of those tiny pencils or possibly a mini wallet-size pen would fit inside too.  You could cut the paper a little thinner so it would fit inside with the pen or pencil.

You could make a little first aid kit to keep in your bag.  Put in a couple of those individually wrapped antibacterial wipes and a few bandaids.  And maybe some tweezers, if you get a lot of splinters.

Similarly, you could make a little sewing kit with a needle and spare buttons, and several colors of thread wrapped around a piece of cardboard.
