Hello! ^w^
I recently made a shadow box, but now I'm left with the glass from the picture frames used... I don't want to just toss them away, but I can't come up with many ideas for three sheets of glass, so... I figured I'd ask you guys for some suggestions!
Because my ideas for them aren't that great, on all honesty.

Thank you for your time!

WARNING: random ideas ahead:
If you have a kiln, you could slump them into bowls
If you have a torch, you could melt them into beads.
But you couldn't mix them with other colors of glass because you don't know the COE.

Reverse paint them in bright colors, then break them up for mosaics.

Cut them into squares or rectangles and use as tiles.

Decoupage pretty paper or fabric to the back and use them for...um...pretty picture kind of things?  Of course, you'd want to frame them, which would produce more excess glass in a vicious circle.

Create a display box with three glass sides and a solid top, bottom, and back.

Or store them until you
A)  find a use for them,
B)  break them by accident, or
C)  move
