My friend used some old CD's as reflectors in her driveway and on her garage door.  It was a very practical reuse that looked cool. 

How about decorating the CD's appropriately (paint, rubber stamps, etc.) attach a stick or dowel and use them as garden labels?

Wow now I feel bad for throwing out so many cds and dvds everytime I screw up burning them!  Definately keeping them now, going to make some kind of massive sculpture or something.

I've seen a whole chandelier on a ceiling made of cds...well it was more like a giant flower on the ceiling but still, heh. I think someone might've mentioned this already.  So I'm sticking with my "giant cd sculpture" idea, lol.

Alright, I actually read through all 36 pages of this (I'm taking a LONG break from my final project for web design that I'd been working on all day, plus I skimmed most of this anyway...a lot of repeats) and I have a few questions:

Anyone ever try making a jewelry box OUT of CDs/DVDs instead of items already box-like?   I've tons of CDs/DVDs and I'd like to know what will cut/saw through cds well enough without breaking the poor tool.  I was thinking if I could perhaps melt/bind them into rectangular pieces and drill holes to put in hinges, and glue together smaller rectangles to make drawers, I could probably make a pretty intricate jewelry box...the kind with the drawers and are long enough for necklaces and the like...I was thinking of adding small hooks for earrings...

Anyone know of any good drill/saw and glues that'll keep it permanently together?

Ok, this is my first time posting with pics - or trying to so we'll see what happens.

I got this box in the mail and it's just too cool to throw away!  It wasn't one of those cheezy paper sleeves - this is actually some kind of pressed wood!

My first thought is to decopage it and somehow secure it so it will stay open and use it as a picture frame.

Any other ideas?  What else could be stored in such a small thin box besides CDs?

Thanks in advance - Michele

Has anyone tried baking in an oven? I think it can be used for the record bowl as well. I'm not too sure though, I haven't got an oven.  I tried burning it, and it got all deformed.

I have tried it. It doesnt melt into the bowl shape like the records do if it still has the shiny backing stuf on it. So you have to peel all that off so you are left with a clear cd. It takes forever and doesnt exactly peel sorta flakes. You can scratch it with scissors or something and use tape to get some off but other than that i havent found an easier method. But once its clear it works pretty well and it forms little bubbles inside the plastic but doesnt distort the shape so its really pretty and starry looking. Ive glued a penny to the bottom or some paper and just put earring or little things in it. One of em I didnt make into a complete bowl but sorta a shallow dish and was gonna give it as an ash tray after glueing a bunch of pennies around the bottom to make it steady but it didnt work the way i planned. Well....sorry if this was a repeat but 36 pages is a lot to sift through haha.

This past Christmas I broke up old CDs and used them to decorate a picture frame form my MIL.


Broken pieces of CDs used to decorate a picture frame in a mozaic, just stuck on with superglue. The black and red portions were not painted. The back of the CDs were already that colour.
