1  Re:record cover journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by luckyklover on: April 16, 2004 02:05:16 PM
this is my first posting with photos... so wish me luck...

i made these books at work, and i'm lucky to have access to tools. such as a bandsaw, which i used to cut the records. but i did read somewhere on this site the method of heating the record and then cutting with heavy duty scissors. so that's a good at-home option.

it started when a co-worker brought in boxes of free records. i cut a straight edge about a third from the top and bottom of the record. then cut the remaining piece in half, down the little hole. then cut a 'spine' type piece (about half an inch) from the front cover piece. so that the cover would be able to fold open, i used black gaffers tape to the 'spine' back to the front cover. next i drilled holes in the spine, then put in 2 small screws with nuts on the back side. next time i may invest in those nice book binding screws. the blank pages are scrap paper from work also.
