    How about making those victorian cones that hold candy to hang on your tree. You roll the card with a point at the bottom and open at the top.Then put sceap ribbion or lace around the top and a little handle to hang it by. If you cards are not large enough just past a couple together like patchwork. I can't put in a link yet but if you search victorian xmas tree decorations. you can do this with any kinda card and I once made them for a birthday party and put them on a tree twig in a flower pot with candy in it for favors.

    What about using them as raised pictures and make other christmas cards?

    Maybe you could try some bookmarks?

    decoration for a box? - like a gift box?

    I've made boxes out of them before.

    http://www.kinderart.com/recycle/cardbox.shtml tells you how to do it without me having to try to explain it.

    I did find one site about making coasters - though looking at their instrustions I think using a laminater would be easier than using that sticky colourless plastic stuff
