I found a box full of two half sets of dominos and with my trusty glue gun and Mod Poc I created a desk  set!
This is a card holder! With an extra domino glued in position behind the card, it stands up nicely and can be taken easily!
Each year I make coasters for one friend.  Of course the challenge is to find different materials from which to create the coasters!  This year its dominos!
These two are my favorites; pencil holder and a paper clip holder.  You dont even have to worry if they are even.  I liked that the bottoms have the dominos facing up to see the dots.
I had a replacement glass with its cardboard frame for a long lost picture frame.  I used the glass and the cardboard backing as part of the picture frame and used the dominos for the real frame.  (I glued the domino frame together and glued the frame to the glass at the corners.) The dominos on the outside of the glass cover up the glue used on the dominos that were attached to the glass. One domino is glued to the top back and a picture hanger is nailed into that.

Dominos refigured into a desk set!  Better than rotting in a landfill!
