Recycle Reuse

Do you know what this pile is?


                                                     Here is another look.  Any guesses?

Well if you didn't guess it is the plastic packaging from the cricut cartridges.  I have been saving them and they have been piling up.  Today I decided to trim off the edges so they are easier to store.  What do you do with yours?  Do you keep them and use them?
I have cut them using my cricut (regular blade at 6, max, max).  Here is a fish bowl that I cut.  http://mommakcrafts.blogspot.com/2010/10/throwback-thursday-challenge-edpd.html  I also use them for windows in boxes.  Let us know what you use yours for.

I like the effect you get when you run them threw the Cuttlebug. I jest recently send most of mine to Raven at http://www.love4stamps.blogspot.com/. Looking forward to seeing more of your projects using them.

I cut out the flat part, and collect them:-) I used for window card, embossing (the idea from my friend) and I will see in the future what can I use for:-)
