Awesome!  But then again, you have a very cute model! 
22  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases on: April 07, 2008 07:11:13 AM
We use the cases to hold CD's from music we have downloaded legally (mycokerewards.com offers 1 free song download for 33 point, which is around 4 12 packs of pop) and label and decorate depending on the content.   

My Mom has used many old CD's and even AOL CD's to a make customized Christmas ornaments and used them to decorate packaged for presents a Christmas.  She would either paint over the worded side or cover, cover with wrapping paper or, Lord help us all, a picture of me when I was 2, then use fabric or paper paint and decorate the shinny side with a small pattern or saying.

I guess you could sew them to clothing and then decorate them, but after people reach a certain age, like over 30, it really does not look cool (not to be mean, but really, it doesn't).
23  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: x-ray films, any ideas? on: April 07, 2008 07:00:41 AM
I can think of lots of ideas, but as you said you have boxes good placed to donate them would be to any school or scout troop as teachers and scout leaders are very creative and will come up with tons of ideas and use them or might use them for teaching tools.  If the school had a teleproductions dept, they could use them as a prop in make short films (I am in my school's video club and it would be a cool prop to have an x-ray for a production).

My Mom used to save lots of stuff that I thought was crap and she would donate it to one of the above and next thing you know, we were doing something cool with it.

If I had some, thing I would make out of them would be:

-   Raid my mom's craft frame stash, cut them to fit in a half-dozen frames or so, then straticially place them on my wall...would make for a great conversation starter.

-   Make a Japanese type folding screen out of it with bamboo tiki torches from the $ store, hinges my Dad has lying around from old doors, and duct tape.  Would be very Goth.

-   Cut down to size and wrap it around an old spaghetti jar and place a small candle inside...again, would be Goth and cool!

-    Halloween costume...could tape them to clothing and be X-Ray Man!

-    Halloween Party Invitations - make them into cards then print off the invitation on white paper then paste it to the X-Rays.

-    Scrapbook pages or covering for Halloween, dream journal or, if your family has a sense of humor, geneology research.
