What to Do With Old Cell Phone Cases

I had these silicone (rubbery) cell phone cases from some older phones and didn't want to throw them away. I thought, 'now what could I do with these?' I came up with a jar opener. I never can find the one in the spatula drawer. It's always buried at the bottom so I threw these in the drawer (after giving them a good scrubbing). Now I just reach in the drawer and one or the other of them is right nearby.
Hope you enjoyed this. Are you thinking of other ways to use these? There must be dozens.
Here are some silicone cell phone cases that were not being used.
This is an Otter Box. It's not mine. I have an Android phone but somehow I came to have these. My old Android case is in the background. It's pink. I love pink, especially bright pink.
Here is my friend, Elaine, demonstrating how to use the cell phone case to open a jar.

    Wow that's awesome Linda. Absolutely Brilliant! Before I had my iPhone I only bought one cover for another cell I had and it was hard plastic. It was pretty though. :^D
