I'll ask a question....

What can I do with old and scratched CD/DVD's (that is beyond repair for watching/listening)??

Response: use them to mix paint on, as a palette. That said: try this first. http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Scratched-CD#Slight_Abrasive_Polishing_Method

Question: what can I do to get rid of the smoke smell from the leather I took off a used couch? It's too big for the washing machine.

I do lots of crafts with used cd's so I'll go back to that question.

I've used cd's as legs for a coffee table: with hot glue I glued several together (all facing in one direction), then glued them to a small plank of wood, then stacked lots on top of them around a thin wood dowel that fit in their holes. Put an old plastic tray on top, hot glued it to the top cd's and had a unique coffee/end table. However, it was very heavy!

Use them in the garden, hung from tree branches, to scare away birds.

Cut them into small pieces with scissors then use to create a "disco mosaic" - cover an old piece of furniture, picture frame, etc. Paint/shellac the surface first.

Make a mobile or room divider by stringing them together with beads in between. Use two, glued back to back, so only the nice shiny side is showing. For a "planet" cut a small styrofoam ball in half and glue each half to the center of the cd. Paint or otherwise decorate.

Cut cd's are very sharp and potentially dangerous - do not use to make jewellery unless you can sand down or cover the edges for safety.

Now for my question: what can I do with all the paper cd envelopes that I have leftover???

The CD envelopes I have, have a window in them. I think it would be cool to  hot glue them or thumbtack them all edge to edge on a piece of cardboard or cork-type bulletin board with the windows facing out. Then you can tuck fun pics into each pouch or if you're a real keener, cut out silhouettes using black paper and tuck them into each one and still mount them for a vignette effect.

Cheers! ...Don't forget to post what you ended up doing

I'm wondering why a cd envelope post and a picture of a sump pump  were marked mature?
No idea what to do with it,sorry.

The sump pump hose reminds me of something for a Halloween costume...perhaps a robot? or some other wiry thing with tentacles?

CD's I use in the garden to make pinwheel style things to scare off the birds and animals. I generaly just hang them with string/twine and let them hang in the breeze.

Sorry (edit) question: Dryer lint??? Any good ideas?

LOVE DRYER LINT! - haha - you can use it mixed with flour & water and some torn up paper all in a blender to make a type of paper mache you can mould into all kinds of stuff like a bowl, just use a bowl as a form to lay it on. let it dry for a couple of days.

Or how about homemade paper?

When I was in scouts, We made fire starters with them: put some lint in each "cup" of an egg carton, we melted our broken crayons in an old soup can and poured it into each cup. Let it dry, and break off each cup individually as a fire starter...it worked good too!

Have fun & post your project pics

my computer is acting funny - I'll post my question tomorrow with a pic!

you could make handles for cabinet doors or serving trays. http://www.the-brick-house.com/2013/02/leather-handle-diy/

Question: what can I do with a lot of popsicle sticks that are kind of flimsy?
