Upcycling Vintage Flash Cards

I come from a long line of people who save stuff.  It has its advantages for a crafter like me.  Recently I found this brown paper bag full of various old flashcards...

Here's what I did with them...

created instant Valentine's decor {I couldn't find a "V" flashcard, so I had to add a glittery chipboard one, which allowed me to use my adorable arrow clothespin from Target's $ section}

fashioned an XOXO sign by punching holes {heart-shaped, of course} & adding ribbon

&, perhaps my favorite, made a playful wordy/woodsy print

Have you ever used flash cards in a crafty way?  
What else would you do with them?

Have a good Hump Day {Wednesday}!
