Uses for Air Pillows from Mailings

What do you do with those small "air pillows" you receive with items in the mail? I have a box full and no ideas. When someone asked what I was going to do with them, I thought of all of you right away. You are all very creative.

Thank you in advance.

Until you find a use for them yourself, you might consider finding someone who sells on e-Bay and give them to that person to use for mailing items. I give a friend of mine the air pillows and she is delighted to have them as some items she sells are very delicate and require several types of packing to insure safe delivery.

If they are clear, you can use them as mini greenhouse covers when you set your seedlings outside. Also, they work as anchors in a cooler if you have a dish that needs steadied.
