I don't know if someone posted this but when i was little i would get these manual cds for computers to start up and we would cut out magazine clippings and glue them on the make a collage and use them in the garden to attract birds. It worked!

Picture Frame. Put glitter around a picture. Glue the picture.
Or if you have a ton of them get spray paint. Paint them different colors. Drill a hole in the top and put ribbon in it. Then hang up. They look neat.

I am definitely a newbie! I saw a post over at Fave-crafts for mother's day gifts and made it for my mom for her birthday.  I took 3 old cds, like from aol, and covered them in scrapbook papers and then took a styrofoam heart, or anything of foam like from packing and make your own shape. I covered it in coordinating papers and fabric trims and made her a mail sorter. It came out lovely. I also added a clipboard I had and covered it in same papers, so she would have a place to hang her emergency numbers by the telephone.  This is my first post. I hope I did it right. Please let me know if I didn't so I change it. Thank you all and have a blessed day!

I always thought it would be cool to take a ton of cds and make a coffee table out of them by simply stacking and glueing them together to make legs and by covering a large rectangle piece of wood with cds to make the table top.  I have no idea how stable this would be, but it shouldn't be that bad since the legs would be really thick.

Those of us who play wargames (like Warhammer) like them for basing larger miniatures on. It helps hold the mini together and the base itself can be decorated to make the mini look better.

If you do any stamping and buy the clear stamps, you can use Aleene's Tack-It Over and Over on the back of the stamps and use the CD cases as storage. You could probably embroider or stamp something on the outside of the CD case to let you know what was in it.

As for the CDs, you could crochet or sew covers for them and use them as coasters.

HTH! Smiley
