A few years ago I bought a stack of 10" records from the 1940-50's from my thrift store because the titles were so sweet and I wanted to experiment with them as seen on Pinterest (which refered me to 9.asset.soup.io/asset/2972/8041_70a*_500.jpeg but no instruction)

Next month my parents will be celebrating their 63rd(!!) wedding anniversary and so this month's Craftster Challenge is extremely timely as it gave me the courage to shape an album into a sillhouette outline using the song title as it's theme.

I found this royalty free image on the internet (vintagefeedsacks.blogspot.com), enlarged-cut-taped and traced the image with a pencil on to the record, then using an exacto knife (and sometimes a hammer!) deeply scored the outline on to the record, and as the final step sanded the edges with sandpaper and emory boards.

After 63 years of marriage I suspect they will recognize the song and appreciate the sentiment   Kiss

I love it--such hard work but it turned out beautifully...could you add a larger picture of the actual finished project?  I think that is the most important picture... Grin

Great work, looks lovely! This is a brilliant and unique way of recycling a vinyl record I hadn't seen before.
