You can sew it. Add fabric handles for sturdy bags. Like those made with pet food bags. Do NOT iron because it wrinkles with heat. Art quilters love the texture. A friend paints them, then irons to wrinkle. Cut out pedals to form flowers.
It seems they would be indestructible as English Paper Piecing templets...
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
Had a friend apply it to fabric postcards after painting them. She also painted, cut strips, then rolled around bamboo skewers to make beads like magazine beads. Heat them up and apply glitter or varnish. Lots of projects on craft sites.
Susan Brubaker-Knapp would melt it atop her quilted pictures and paint it too I believe. Check her website; she was at our Retreat in NC as a guest speaker. Also she was on The Quilt Show. Worth checking out her site. I'd have to look it up for you.

Thanks everyone. I don't have enough for a piece of clothing or a rug, but I do have enough to play around with. It's interesting stuff! Wonder if I could sew it into (craft) things that need a little stiffening? And I'll bet my cats would like it inside cat toys, for the crinkle factor.
