  • Use them to make borders for flower bed's or along the walking path to the front door or on the edge of the driveway.

  • Then I have no idea. If your near SC Ill take them off your hands for you. Maybe lay then on their sides and make a flat path out of them?

  • OOOOHHHH IL??? I'll take em. :) do you want something "crafty" ? You could lay them out as a base for your grill. circular stack em for a planter. Stand them up and paint them into faces (i've seen em at craft fairs made into snowmen (2 stacked of the fat ones) baseball team players (shirt painted with a face) ghost for halloween.....and they sell for like 20$!!!!

  • I've seen crafts where animals and people are made with different shaped pavers, like uncle sam, santa, snowmen, and such, you could make ladybugs like this: http://ladybugbrickpavers.homestead.com/ and give as gifts, you'd just need small square ones and the special glue to stick them together and paint. Make a few for your garden and give others away or even rent a table at a flea market and sell them.
