I made this last night for the blank wall in my office. I think it brightens the place up a wee bit.  Kiss

Bummer... I melted it.  Grin

However, Polka albums are usually very easy to find in thrift stores. I'll pick more up this week and if you still want to buy some, let me know.

That's great! The rhinestones are a nice touch.

Adorable and so clever! I have been going to make a clock out of some old kitchy LP's for a few weeks now, and was trying to figure out how to make them look finished. The fringe was a very good idea.
I was also trying to think of a way of incorporating the album itself...any ideas? I was thinking pendulum, but that would be one big pendulum. Maybe I'll just use the album for a separate clock, it already has a hole in the middle!

Thanks all.
Rabid -- what about cutting the album so that you have 4 "sides" (rounded edges) poking out from behind each side of the LP jacket? So that it would look like a square laying on top of a large circle -- does this make sense? If not, I can post a pic of what I have in mind.
