What do I do with all these business cards?  
I have been cleaning up my den, and in the process, condensing collections of objects I have accumulated throughout the years. One of the collections that have I have been noticing is that I sure have a lot of unused business cards from the various places I have worked for the least 20 years. Most of them are in lots of 500, and in most cases, I gave out maybe a few dozen, if that. Things I could "boast" about at social events at one time or another:

- I was a manager at Crown Books.
- I was assistant manager at Chesapeake Knife and Tool in two locations. One location has two lots because the first time they spelled my name wrong.
- I was a manager of Cargo Furniture in two locations.
- I held 5 titles "worthy of business cards" at AOL.
- I read tarot (when I used to do so at a Maryland cafe, that stint barely paid for the business cards).
- I am a published author. Bonus, these cards are also stickers!
- My freelance IT work (I still use these, but I got a new set when I started getting certs).

I think I have over 6000 cards to get rid of. Now I could just chuck 'em, but I am trying to think of a creative art project.

Color them all different colors. Create a wall-sized mosaic mural (like they do with photomosaics, create another image with your colored cards).

That sort of art, especially with the unusualness of the business cards, all with your name on it, is the type galleries and museums EAT UP.

I like your idea, actually.
