Yep Mooh! Brian May, guitarist from Queen and one of my idols (yes, another one)is where I got the idea from! "One thin dime," he says, "one thin dime." Also you can use the rough edge to get some neat effects. I've used stuff from plastic handle to pencaps, pencils, strips of metal, and screws as picks. I've also used anything from cassette tape boxes, bulldog clips, AA batteries, soda bottles, and paper clips as slides. Eddie Van Halen has been known to use chainsaws, sandpaper, and velvet strips to produce desired effects!
