My hubby travels alot and bring me home the key cards for the rooms. They are hard plastic similiar to credit cards and I have about 1000 of them. I would like to use them to make something but not sure exactly what.
Got kids????.. If so... take the cards and stick white stickers on the front ( disk labels are about the right size)..then drill a hole in the top center. Then list a single chore on each card. Then hang them on the " to-do" hook.. when they do it they can move them to the "done" hook! I did this with a whole bunch of formica chip samples.. it worked great!
I seem to recall a commercial where Martha Stewart mosiaced a swimming pool with credit card pieces!
i wonder if you could use that Krylon spray paint made for plastic furniture and paint them, (maybe all different colors?) and mosaic using that?
Kids like to use pretend credit/debit cards. Okay, so even donating to pre-schools, that still leaves you with, like, 975 cards...
Paint, if desired, then punch holes at uniform spots top, bottom and sides of the cards, then attach w/ metal rings, 5 or 10 or however many across and then 10 or so down--mod window hanging.
Adnama, I LOVE this idea! You could use the spray paint (meant for outdoor furniture) that I mentioned, and use these as an alternative for a screen on a porch, or covered deck... thats how I see them. to keep them from moving too much, you could fasten them at the bottom as well...
Gee... this could be done with other things as well... like maybe cds?
I've seen this done with old slides. They fastened them top and bottom and hung row upon row of them in a window as the treatment. It reminded me of the old bead curtains we had in our doors in the 70's......
i have been saving those cards we all get in the mail for a few yrs have acan full .
I want to use them for shingles for a birdhouse or like I told d.d a barbi house I have done basi mock up with tape holding them and it looks pretty cool witht he mixed color . about the time I thought of that they started switching to the kinda papery ones , darn. don,t have a use for it but the curtain thingy would be eay to make .

Have the kids make flashcards using a Sharpee marker to learn their times tables. That's a gift for life!
MAybe you could use them as garden markers.
