  • Do you want to make something or are you just looking for something to do with them? There is a charity box at many hospitals for tabs. I'm not sure what they do with them, but I see them all of the time.

  • I use them to hang picture frames. Use a hot glue gun to fasten the tab to the wood, leaving the hole part free for the nail that use use to hang the picture.
