Why buy something when you can make it ♥

I have a lot of these prepaid load cards:


they are cards that are quite sturdy (as sturdy as a calling card, but made of plastic) it's not very hard like a credit card.. this one's bendable and made of plastic. What do you think can I do with these? I used to make earrings with them but I figured I have quite a LOT and not all can be made as earrings. Any ideas?

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Can they be sewn together?  You could sew or tape them together in various configurations to make little gift bags or boxes maybe.  What about making bangles with them too?  I would also use them for making small work surfaces too like a base to hold resin pieces as they dry or something like that.  Or taping a bunch of them together to make a larger, more durable work surface - like a placemat for crafting.  You could hole punch them and make them into covers for books for either home made blank notepads or journals.  Or get more creative and decorate them and used them in mixed media art books, photo albums, scrapbooks/journals.  What about using them as a base for magnets - you could mount art or pictures on them and add a magnet to the back.

Gift tags:
Someone here punched a hole in the corner and painted them with blackboard paint. Then they wrote "to & from" info on them  with chalk and tied a ribbon through the hole and attached it to the gift
I guess it was here on the same page:
