I love reader questions like this one because they make me feel less strange about some of the random things I keep.  I just can’t help it!  Over on our Facebook fan page, reader Shana asked:

Chipboard coasters — you know, the ones you get at a restaurant — what can I do with ’em??

I have a collection of these as well, since things that are colorful and free are hard for me to resist. I’ve been wanting to take some of them and bind them with paper to make miniature notebooks. I’ve also considered saving up a whole bunch of different designs and using them to create some large-scale specimen art to cover a whole wall.

So, dear readers, we put the question to you: What would you make with a collection of chipboard coasters?
