Hi all!

Need your crafty brains - I just traded someone for a bunch of superhero comic books (at least 40).

So I want to make cool things to sell - any ideas?

I already know about marble magnets - what else?

Thanks,
Morgan

rip out the pages, tape them together, cover with clear tape, put cardboard on the back, voila, a cool new purse or messenger bag!   also i saw a post where you cut a piece to fit an old magnet and glue it on, then put mod podge on it, throw on some microbeads (the teeny beads w/ out holes in them) and its a really cool-looking magnet!

haHA! my friend just got his dad to mail him his old comic book collection and it's quite large, so we've been sitting around brain storming for the past few days about what to do with them, and we were thinking about cutting out the pages and laminating them together, like in large sheet form, and then using them like fabric to make clothes and stuff.

i really like the afore mentioned messenger bag idea, though.

I like making marble magnets with the word bubbles.  Then you can make your own comics on your fridge using pictures of your friends.

here are some more ideas of what to do with them:
1) send some to me!!
2) www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=14;action=display;threadid=609 and put comics instead of pics
3) www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=5;action=display;threadid=27 and put comics on the chairs (sctually you could do it with any item of furniture)
4)here's the microbeads thread- www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=14;action=display;threadid=410

Good Luck!!

One word: wallpaper. I know it sounds 'done', but trust me, comic books as wallpaper are very awesome. In my old room, I had an entire wall papered in MAD fold-ins. I think old Judge Dredd comics would be nifty too, or superman. But only do one wall, because all that detail done on ALL your walls will make you feel claustrophobic.
