Other than the usual bubbles, does anyone have a design or use for these?

Angel/butterfly/bumble bee/dragonfly wings, gumball tubes, Elsa cape, light sabers (w/160 inside), pregnant poodle.

Off the top of my head.

I use them as a handle on flying things, like airplanes or Superman.

Put a super ball inside a clear 260, and blow the balloon in a spiral.

More ideas:

Like others, I use them as wings for certain animals; as a handle for flying animals - to make a ghost into a flying ghost; and the superball thing.

I don't do the spiral like Donald. I put the ball inside, inflate the balloon, then tie it into a pretzel-knot shape. I usually connect the two ends of the pretzel. It's sort of hypnotic to play with it. That might be something I learned from a TMyers video - I'm not sure.

I've made a basketball hoop hat and used a clear 260 to hold the basketball up above it. Especially if it is for an adult. Sometimes adults want a hat, but they aren't going to actually throw the ball into the hoop the way kids will.

I use clear 5" rounds all the time. I put cupcake sprinkles in the round (done at home). Use a colored 260 to make a handle (three petals and a long handle part), and you have a shaker/maracas. Kids love it, and it is super easy.

Also, I'll use clear 350/646s to put a rose inside glass, a goldfish in a tank, or similar situation where one design goes inside another.
