Once again I want to hear it from all you talented individuals.
Here's my dilemma: I have 24 pairs of shoulder pads in very good condition. I realize that they are out of style (but if I decide to keep them long enough I know they will come back into vogue). I absolutely detest "wasting" and other than using them to hold pierced earrings, I don't know what to do with them. I don't want to toss them out. Do you have any creative ideas? I thought with girl scouts, arts and crafts, etc. getting back into swing that maybe some leaders could offer me some guidelines.
Thanks ahead of time for coming to the rescue (as I know you always do).

You might want to check to see if you have a local Cadet corps near you that does rifle drill. My daughter is a Sea Cadet here in Ontario and she has come home with bruised collarbones more times than I can count. I started to put my old shoulder pads just under her brastrap where she slaps the rifle into her shoulder and this helped to alleviate the problem somewhat. Males can always baste the shoulder pad in place under their uniform to protect their shoulders. (05/02/2006)

Make great gifts to put on the outside of presents and on your Christmas tree by making angels out of them. They are easy and are vey cute. E-mail me for the directions, as I will have to dig for them. (Imagine someone with her hands in every craft there is, having to dig for something!) jamies_lifeainteasy AT yahoo.com (05/03/2006)
I use mine for needle cases when I am doing any embroidery that requires several needles with different coloured thread/ribbon. They are great when I carry only what items I need for stitching whenever I know I'm going to have a wait somewhere eg doctors. The time goes so fast that I'm disappointed when it's my turn, as I always have "just one more stitch" to do.
I also keep one handy for pins when I'm using them for needlework where I'm pinning & unpinning several times. (10/11/2006)
