What Am I Going To Do With These Things?

This is a wooden block with a slit cut in it. I don't mean to insult your intelligence, I simply want to be sure that you understand what we are dealing with here. I've got a large bag filled with around 150 of these little things, leftovers from a silent auction some years back (they held up description cards).

They measure 2.6" x 2" x 3/4" and feature a slit running halfway into the block at a roughly 75-80 degree angle. At least I think it would be 75-80. They range a bit in color, since they were probably cut from junk wood, and a few have paint splashes on them, but they overall uniform.

I hate throwing them away, so if I can't figure out good and craft-worthy plan, they're heading to the local Freecycle list. So I ask you all: What on earth am I to do with these things?

you should buy thin pieces of glass, put pictures between them and then use the blocks as frames (putting the glass-picture-glass sandwich in the groove). Paint the blocks crazy colors!

That's a whack idea. I love it. I had thought of standing pictures in them, but they'll be far more "futuro" if I use glass. Thanks!
