I have an old computer mouse shaped like a burger I bought many, many years ago and no longer worrks with my PC, I don't want to throw it away and was wondering if anyone has any ideas of something to do with it? The only reuse of computer mice I've seen so far is belt buckles, which doesn't really appeal to me! I did think of a pin cushion....
A good photo of my item can be found here: http://www.flixya.com/photo/1974614/burger-mouse

That is ADORABLE! I was going to suggest coin purse, but seeing the picture, I don't know now.

OMG OMG OMG!!!!! Turn it into a FASCINATOR!!!!! I would SO wear a burger on my head!!!!!

Fantastic little thing. How about making it a fridge magnet?
Or a bowl of fake food for deco?

Thanks for the suggestions - I am very tempted by the fascinator idea I must say!  Cheesy

My first thought for this was a paper weight!

Hollow out the mouse then fill it with plaster and let it completely dry over a few nights. Now it's ready to sit on your desk to keep papers from flying away or to spark some conversation. Smiley HTH

I'm back and would love to make some new crafting friends!

Great ideas thank you. I'd forgotten I'd written this post and just jogged my memory today when I saw the mouse in the cupboard - I must recycle it soon!  Cheesy
