500 Business Cards

So my company is getting to be pretty big...so big, in fact, that we have run out of 3 number extensions. As a result, several weeks ago we were given notice that we would be getting new extensions, and that they would be ordering us new business cards. I looked over at my box full of old business cards that I am not sure I've ever even opened and wondered if this colossal waste of quality paper was even necessary.

Despite my insistence that if I ever actually used a business card, I could just write a 1 in front of my old extension before I gave it to the person, I received my new business cards today. Sure enough, the only difference between them and my old cards is the 1. So now I have at least 500 outdated business cards (cursed 1) that I have no idea what to do with. It seems a shame to throw them away...they're so professional looking! Any ideas of what I could do with them? So far the only thing coming to mind is giving them to Addison to play with.

I'm sure Bart could use some paste and make a paper mache art something or other. That would be really funny! Or recycle them. But I'm going for the art thing!

Haha, I've had the same problem at my work, I have more business cards then I will ever know what to do with. They make pretty good card houses but I'm sure Addison would love them too.

Make face cards out of them so we can play Nertz!
