hey craftsters! i haven't been active on these boards for a bit. sadness. but i just did some crafting/decorating, and i decided i had to share it with all of you.
i'm interning at a record company, and there are a lot of sampler CDs that are thrown away because, well, no one has any use for them. so i took a box of used, burned, purple CDs home with me and BAM- awesomeness.
i took the wood burner i have and burned little holes in the top of a bunch of CDs, then i grabbed a bunch of clear thumb tacks and put them all up on our kitchen/bar area. once before i had to put a few holes in some CDs, and i used a needle that i held with pliers and heated up over a candle. that invloved a lot of me burning myself, so i'm all about the wood burner.

That's pretty cool. I did that to a little table of mine once, but it didn't look so nice...
If you really wanted to change things up a bit you could try painting them different colors or like, different shades of one color. I think that'd be pretty cool.

The woodburner is an awesome idea.  I keep trying to find ways to hang my altered CDs...it's been trial and lots of error since I started making them (the hot glue just doesn't want to stick to plastic).

That really does look cool.  Grin

thanks dudes! it looks nice in my apartment because everythign is so so white and beige and bland. plus, it took, like, 15 minutes. you can't be 15 minutes for interior decorating. haha.
