The best thing I've maid is a CD purse:
Thread some sort of strap (I used an old wallet chain, and it looks awesome) through the holes in the CDs and glue the ends to the nonprinted sides (make sure the printed sides both face out!).  Hot-glue some sort of weight (I used washers) to the bottom halves (on the back sides) of the CDs, because if you don't, the purse will flup over when you carry it.  Hot-glue a little drawstring bag (you can get them for free with makeup purchases sometimes) in between the two CDs, and voila!  A purse!

They're pretty small, they don't hold much.  If you want a bigger one, you can make it out of two records and just use a bigger bag inside.

Not your idea, but my best friend's son has a paneling in his room, so she could only decorate his ceiling, so she used CDs and put them up so the shiny/mirrory side was visible... It's VERY cool..

Of course, everyone at Walmart thought we were wierd because we'd come in and take thirty or forty at a time.... Too many to carry/whole strips at a time.  lol

Okay, this isn't that creative.  But it's a good idea to take an unwanted CD or two on camping or hiking trips to use as a signal mirror if you get lost or injured.  They are better than mirrors because they are lighter and break less easily.  I don't know if you can starta  fire with one, though...For more on how to use a signal mirror, go to:

CD's require more heat apparently than vinyl records (diff. kinds of plastic).  You might want to check out this page, under the sub-category CD's for more info on heating CD's:

Whatever you do, don't use double sided foam tape to attach cds to drywall.  Oh yes, all those cds looked so cool in our computer room, with the shiny side out.  

However, it was a NIGHTMARE to take them all down and discover the glue from the foam tape had damaged the drywall.  And our place was a rental.  Lots and lots and lots of sanding, spackling, and painting to fix it.  Totally not worth it!

One time (a few years ago now) I took a few old cd's and cut the into square like pieces etc and took a styrofoam ball and pieced them all together on it to create a little mini disco ball.

I can't remember how I attatched the string. I gave it away actually. I wish I hadn't because it was very cool.

If you could figure out a sturdy way to attatch something you could hang it from your rearview mirror or something. Or would that shine light in your eyes and distract the driving? lol

But that's what I did with my old cds. Smiley

when i lived in dorms everyone who had old cd's would tape them up around their view hole on their door. the hole in the cd fits perfectly around it. i know you can put them in the microwave for about 5 seconds and you'll see all these sparks and it will crackle the mirror-looking side. but, the jury is still out on whether that is dangerous for you and/or your microwave. but i confess, it looks really cool!!!
