    What to do with old business cards?

    I have a bajillion old business cards from my previous position - I'm not sure why they had me get cards b/c I mainly dealt with other staff and not many folks outside of where I work.

    I'm in a new dept now and have all these cards and part of me just wants to chuck them, but the other part figures there must be something userful or decorative to do with them.

    Any suggestions??

    tag art?

    you could turn them into gift tags, or mini (teensy!) book pages, or string them together after painting them to make a garland ala fred flare's felt ones....

    if they are textured, the blank side could make a neat addition to scrapbook pages...

    that's all i've got!

    wall art

    You could paint one side a solid color, use a small hole punch on the four sides, then use jump rings to fasten them together. I think that would look really cool if you had a bajillion of them all connected together, and it completly covered a wall.

    Google up 1000 blank cards, it's a game you make up as you go along, essentially. Someday that's what I'm going to do with my old box of cards in the closet...

    I used to make flip books with them. I haven't been able to rescue any misprints lately, though, so I haven't done any in a while.

    ooh, you could also use them on handmade greeting cards, glued on the front as a kind of panel with art on it that will stand out from the rest of the card. god, I can't explain things for crap.

    or bookmarks, which is what all my scraps of paper end up as, but you only need so many of those.
