Ideas for Little Wood Frames?

If you saw my craft room right now (aka bedroom), you would think I was, well, a little disorganized. I literally have about five projects going at once. Christmas trees, jewelry boxes, pillows, gift bags, switchplates...ahhhh!!! I'm also trying to organize a teacher's luncheon school so my downstairs office has papers strewn across the floor. Needless to say, I don't need another project, but here I am asking for your help on yet another one....

I have five of the little frames you see in the pictures -- they are roughly 4-1/2" x 4". I've kept them for about three years now. I have no clue what to do with them, so, I'm coming to you dear followers to give me some ideas. All I know is that I DON'T want to use them as picture frames. Ideas? Anyone?
P.S. Stay tuned for some tutorials coming your way.

They are nice and beefy! I like 'em!

The first thing that came to mind was to use them to frame a peek-a-boo hole on a door. I've always wanted to do that with a very unique frame.

That got me thinking for you to maybe use them as molding perhaps on a plain cabinet door. You know to put them on the door (with liquid nails) and paint them and the door the same color. Does that make sense?

Could the frame become the lid of one of your pretty boxes? Of course you would have to build a box to fit it...sorry that wasn't an easy-to-do idea. :( OK, the frame could be the top of a wind chime (hang it horizontally) and attach spoons/forks etc. to act as the chimes. I'm sure your ideas will be much better!!!

This is hard! No picture frames, maybe a sort of plank where you can put hot things op, like a pot of tea. Paint it in a lovely color and it fits perfectly in you house :D
