I've got a new favorite thing to craft with.
Who would have thought you could do so much with them?
My favorites so far are pretty doily place cards used in two ways:

Aren't they so sweet, especially when paired up with some gorgeous calligraphy?
And my most favorite new way to use doilies...
They're super easy to make too. All you've pretty much got to do is fold a square/round doily into an envelope. I've also seen other doily envelopes with tracing paper or vellum used as a protective sheet (made into another envelope and placed inside the doily envelope.)
I had some special cards to send out and it was the perfect opportunity to try making my own doily envelopes. I used round ones and an envelope template to cut them out.
I love how dainty and sweet the envelopes look. Definitely something I'm going to keep in my craft arsenal!
