    Can use to cut stencils for decorating cookies, cupcakes or for any craft needing a small stencil. I use lids from Pringles for this and also for painting trays. Just put a small amount of paint at a time, and rinse and use over and over.

    You could edge a small outside flower bed with them. That would add a little more colour and curb appeal to your house. :)

    You could make a wreath with them, especially to hang on a shed or fence. Weatherproof, and extremely cleanable. Do you have kids or grandkids? Along with some mini flags, you could set up a game of frisbee golf.

    #1you could take polyfil and put inside the lid and cover with fabric then glue all to inside of lid. You now would have a pin cushion. #2 you could paint them to match your kitchen and with a nail add 3 or 4 holes in it for drainage and then use as a soap dish or sponge holder. #3 paint or cover with fabric to match your den or livingroom and use as coasters

    I am running them through my sizzix machine to cut shapes like leaves and flowers. Then I will give the cut shapes to my school children and let them thread them onto a string or tie to a stick for a hanging suncatcher.

    Depending upon the colors cut up into shapes they might make make nice holiday garlands. I often like them at the windows that are on the fireplace mantle with some fairy lights.
