Whether you alter them or use them as is, these Indonesian domino kiu kiu cards have wide application in a variety of paper arts projects.

Use them for ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), altered art, collage, tags or mini albums. The cards are not acid-free so you need to consider that when deciding whether to use them in a scrapbook.

Known as kartu domino or kiu kiu, they're widely used for gambling, a popular pastime in some parts of Indonesia, and banned in places such as Aceh where Sharia law prevails.

There is also a Gunting (scissors) brand of these cards and if you're a collector, I have some of them too. Please convo me for a photo and details.

BACK STORY
Domino cards get used in Indonesia in gambling games such as gaple, block kiu, kiu kiu, block cacar and medomant (Bahasa Bali).

So popular is gaple that iTunes has a gaple app that you can download for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gaple/id338822389?mt=8

As with traditional dominos, the object is to to match pieces by the values or by the pictures on both ends.
