Love love love these. As soon as I can I will post a pic of the shoes I did with a map. I was so glad to see yours.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases on: June 04, 2004 05:57:23 AM
I have no pics yet; CD Mobile: choose good strong string (waxed, fishing string, floss, etc); I used the waxed type string used to make jewelry as it is good and strong. I also needed this strength to hold mine at the top as it is very heavy. Read on. Go for five strings at the most because of CDs large size; don't make length too long as it will get tangled in the wind; (my first project failed);

My 2nd one I made the length about 18 to 20 inches long and that [b]included[/b] the CD tied on the bottom. glue or tie maybe both,(your choice) CDs together;  experiment;

I just glued them together, tied a string around the center to the side, then attached a babble to hang at the bottom. Then tie another long string (about 36 ") to the other side of the CDS onto which you will string your beads and hang it. You can tie a little bobble on the bottom if you wish; you can place a little babble of some type in the center of the Cds too;

Then get all your extra beads (that will accommodiate your choice of string or cord) and divide them all out into five sets. If you don't have exactly enough of each just substitute according to size and color.

String the beads on above the CDs. Lay your first one to the side (or hang it near you some way for easy reference). Then string the rest. Tie them to an object of your choice.

 Believe it or not, I used a round chrome motorcycle primary cover (it was about 8 inches across) and tied the strings to the primary screw holes. Then tie strings to the top part, gather them all together, tie in one knot, come about 2 inches above that and tie in another knot. Then hang it up and see what else you want to do with it.

After hanging it, I found an extra silver-type chain that I hung under the primary cover, and between the other strings to add interest. I like lots of babbles and beads. My second one turned out great. It serves as a memory of that particular day I made it.
