Uses for left-over PVC "fake wood" blind slats
We recently installed fake wood blinds in our home. The blinds are made of PVC and are white. We removed a lot of slats in order to size them for our windows, and I hate to just through all of those slats away. I'm trying to think of something I could make with them...possibly jewelry? The material can be cut and I think it can be sanded. I tried stamping on it with a rubber stamp and it takes the ink beautifully.
Does anyone have any great craft ideas?

is it thick enough to screw those tiny jewelry-sized eyes into the sides? it would be neat to make square, stamped "tiles" and hook them together to make a bracelet. i wonder if you can picture what i mean?
you could also make stamped pendants, if you can figure out a way to attach a hook or loop to the top.
what a fun "cast off" material to think about working with! hope you'll show us what you end up doing.
You could make picture frames out of them.
