depending on the size of them, I'd say alter them to house recipe cards that you enclose within. Almost like you take the lid off and they swing open like a book, housing the recipe cards within.
You could also do it like an address book too.
Just an idea, Kate

They make good storage/holders for various items:
pens/pencils/crayons/markers spare change small toys if you have children/grandchildren
I had some other ideas, and once I remember what they were I'll share.

You can alter them to store things, like Bathroom items such as razors, extra soap, toothpaste, first aid items. Paint or alter them and make a cookie storage can, or dry storage for pasta or beans. Use them in yoru cabinet for those envelopes of gravy mix, taco mix, Koolaid packets etc.. My dad uses coffe cans to store nuts bolts and screws, spare parts for stuff in the garage, garden tools. You could even paint them and use them to start plants inside for planting in the spring, or use silks and make a nice arrangement for your porch or deck. the possibilities are endless!

I'm thinking you may be able to alter some to use in a nursery, to hold tubes of diaper ointment, diaper pins, small toys for baby to hold while changing, etc. :-)

When the idea of the bathroom was brought up - I thought that you could make them into a cover for an extra roll of TP on the back of the toilet. Just turn it upside down and set it over it. Then you could create what ever you wanted on the outside as a cover.
