(i think thats what they are called...the folded up paper things that come in cd cases..)

my cds were stolen a little while ago  Cry  and now i have about 13...14 of them and i don't want to throw them away. i'm one of those people that likes to hold on to things  (and if i can, make stuff out of 'em!)

but i can't think of anything to do with them!...
any ideas?  Huh

Coasters? Origami paper? Frame them and hang them? Decoupage?

Turn them into journals.

Ooooh!!!  I feel so DIY savvy for making up something completely new, I think.  For gifts for people, pick a booklet or a page that you think a person would like, buy a small flower pot and plant a flower in it, and then wrap the booklet around it and then Mod Podge it.  Not sure if it would work because I"m just thinking it up righ tnow, but it might, and it could be cool.

thats a good idea...maybe i'll try it.  Smiley (the flower pot thing)

i was kinda thinking about maybe getting some of those $1 notebooks and making some journals...cut out and collage them on the cover. that would look cool. but..
what should (and where can i get it) i put over the glued on collage to keep it on there and protect it and all that that good stuff
(i'm kinda new too making stuff, i've been in a very creative mood lately and decided i need to get all my energy out!..already made some bracelets and earring and necklaces tehe)

I keep all of my cd's on spindles that blank cds come in or in a cd book, so I too have all of the booklets...  I decoupaged them onto a trunk (it's actually a wooden toy chest) I painted it a reddish color, decoupaged the front with cd covers...the back-  I cut  out a fleur de lis from pretty paper and put swirly lines to match my curtains, the top has  a drawing that I got from sassy magazine SO MANY YEARS AGO, and my name...and the sides i did with orange polka dots...  sealed it all up and it's WAY COOL!!!

Just a thought...   Grin

*gasp*Shocked another just this second from looking at my coke bottle idea!
i can do the decorating thing to bottles (beer..wine..soda) and use them as vases and nething else i can think of..but still:

what should i (and where can i possibly get it)  put over the glued on decoration to keep it on there and protect it and all that that good stuff?Huh??

(haha i ask for ideas and then i come up with my own for my self...does this count as talking to myself?)

you can use Modge Podge for decopage.

Found at most any craft supply shop.  michaels, joann, etc...

It's very easy to use, and creates a good protective surface.

Good luck!

Yes, Mod Podge is wonderful stuff.  I've gotten to the point where I forgo easier gluing methods and just use it to paste things together.
And it comes in all sorts of finishes to choose from.

like the way hammer meets nail -
pounding, they say.
pounding out the rhythms of attraction,
like a woman was a drum,
like a body was a weapon,
like there was something more they wanted.

well for a quick fix in stead of modge podge (sp???) I mix glue and water until it's paintable and liquidy...it tends to warp magaizine pictures though...well happy crafting....
