I have a ton of these.   My newest computers (yes, I am a geek) did not even come with a floppy drive.   How can I immortalize this vinatage form of data storage?

they might be a bit heavy, but how about one of those beaded door curtains, except not beaded, floppy-disked... Grin

Haven't tried this, but you can make a CD/DVD holder, divider thingy by gluing several disks upright in a row on a solid base. You could space them apart so that you can stick about 3 CD's in each slot. Old-school and new technology co-existing together! Wink

You can also hot glue them into cubes and use them as hanging things ie. christmas ornanments, wall art whatever. I am thinking that this would be cool for my geekish older brothers 1st christmas tree.

You could do what the computer teachers do at school for something quick. They use the floppies as keychains!

i assume you mean 3.5 inch floppy disks, which aren't too floppy at all...glueing them together and cutting paper to fit in the cube with one the top and one side open makes a good gift for computer geeks...also you can tile a table and put that liquid glass stuff over it...i did that with my friends bar...i make journals from the floppier 5.25 inch disks...see thread : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64929.0
