That's great- would make a cool Christmas gift- one could include fun compilations...theme could be adapted for babies, weddings birthdays and all sorts of milestone life-affirming events (or hey, a funeral if you deem suitable or have a dark sense of humor....)

This is awesome... I am working on it right now, except I am just pasting the record covers onto regular three-ring binders... I'll try to post some pictures when I am done and i get my camera cord sent to me (left at my parents over the holidays! d'oh!)

That's a great idea!  I have some great album covers from my parents...and way too many burned CDs...perfect solution!

oh, I forgot to add...  I was told by the Kinko's guy that the maximum length they could coil bind is 11", which was okay because I trimmed some of the album off to get closer to the size of the insert.  But it's probably something to be aware of.

Yep, the max length is 11". I work at CopyMax (the copy center inside OfficeMax) and we do the same type of binding. For something like that, depending on how thick it is, would probably run you about $3 - $4. I think. The prices may change  a little, depending on the store, but it shouldn't change too much.

Cool idea, though. I might try that.

I love this idea.  Knew I had to do something with all those covers leftover from my record bowl phase....

Here's a cheap source for the pages (and you get free shipping when you order >$25 of stuff):
It's $5 for 10 pages.

Thanks to vanniejoe for the tutorial. I made mine yesterday and it was super easy! The binding cost me about $4.50 if anyone is wondering.







Sorry if the pics are too big or anything. I love this project and plan to make more.

I LOVE this idea. I just bought a new Rocky Horror Picture Show album, and the cover is definitely going to be used to make one of these.
