OoOoO...isn't that nifty!

It might be neat to take a small record and turn it into a bowl for dip, and use the sleeve to make a box for the chips!...of course...you would probably have to use a bigger sleeve..


Oh what a nifty idea. Hey, now that we have an idea for what to do with old records, how about what to do with those nifty old cardboard  album covers. I thike Ari is on to somthing and I have another idea, how about using the cardboard cover to emblish a duct tape totebag or messanger bag?

I was just wondering if you had some ideas on varnishing the inside of the bowl so that the label wouldn't get all yucky if I wanted to wipe it clean after use.  I've never varnished anything...but I think that is the word I'm looking for.  Any ideas on what I'll need to do this?

Oh and does the record in the oven make the house stinky? Lips sealed

You might want to try some Varathane put out by the Flecto paint company. I don't know if it'll work on the vinal <SP?> of the record but, it'd be worth a try. I know that varathane works on polimer clay and can be used to adhere thing peices to polimer clay to things like wood and cardboard to get a mosiac effect. I think the next time I have some money and the time, I'll hit my local good will and ty to get some old records and try this. I'll try the Varathane to varnish the inside and post my resalts on here

I would go with just a srop at the nearest Wall-Mart or discount store and get some cheap nail polish. Plus, most nail polishes have a brush built right into the lid that you can use. I have seen many things my friends have done using nail polish on metal or plastic that has worked remarkably well.

Totaly Awsome. I am trying to get the $ togather for the tools I need to do wire wraping and at the same time looking for alternatives to gemstones and glass marbls. Thanks for the insperation. When I can get the stuff togather and figure out how to post pictures, I'll post some of my work. Did you breake the plates yourself or did you find them already broken? I thinking breaking them yourself would be so much fun but than, I love the sound of stuff like that breaking LOL

I love the Idea. I am currently experimenting with duct tape but and am coming up with ideas for belts and cuff braclets but, I was thinking more along the lines of studs, Ilets and leather cord or lacing. Don't know if I could find the lightbright pegs around here unless I hit the thrift shops and yard sales.

That is to cute. Reminds me of a christmass tree one year. Here in Delaware there is a company the manuifactures tampons and bras and such and one year they decided to decorate a tree in frount of the company's office with decatartions made with things the company prduces. Some one came up with the idea or removing the core of the tampon from the aplicator and diping in in colored watter untill it had finished expanding to form small bells. They had almost every color of the rainbow except for red.

Can anyone direct me to a tutorial on how to make messanger bags with duct tape? I love making bi-fold walletts with duck tape and I have made a cigarette case with duct tape but, I want to try making a messanger bag.
