Here's a calendar you can make with a jewel CD case: http://www.thestampingstudio.com/new/classes/class3.htm

I've also seen a cool calendar made out of an AOL DVD size case: http://readysetcreate.com/forum/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=si&img=1469
My computer Rick and I are still together, just in case you were wondering.

Cool little clocks for everyone on your christmas list - paint or decoupage on the c.dl, buy a clock kit at Michaels or Joanns and assemble as per directions.  voila - something for (almost) nothing!
I love making these! Here's a geeky one I made, my favorite! Me likes the capacitors and resistors. Everybody always thinks the wires and stuff makes it work. If they are my friends I tell them about the clockword. But sometimes I let them think that.  Wink

I don't know if these are already in here (26 pages, lol), but here is what I have been doing with my unlimited supply of CD's and Cases (lots of boring details here, suffice it to say that I am not stealing them, and they aren't AOL CD's):

Picture Frames with the CD cases
CD Lamp (do a google search)
CD door curtain (a la the beaded curtains of the 70's
Handbags (hot glue - I don't sew)
Calenders (this is in this thread somewhere)
Treasure boxes
Journals (DVD case)

Just so you all know, I don't have CD's all over my house Smiley, but I am thinking of doing a CD theme for my little girl's Christmas this year. She's little enough to absolutely LOVE all ov the above.

My one friend made a small end table out of free aol CD's, I think there were 100 in each leg, then he took a cut a piece of fiber glass and glues a buch onto it.  It look cool and was free since he stole the fiber glass from his dad and the glue from his mom.

I havn't read through all 26 pages so if that was already mentioned, my bad.

What about using them as earring holders, like the records in another forum? I guess you could heat up a nail or something and poke holes..then stick your earrings in it.

I might have to try that now.

Would a hot nail make it through the aluminum?   Not sure, but I know for a fact that you can drill through a CD with those little teeny drill bits, because I've been doing it for days now for a gift I am making for my daughter.

Because making shiny things is fun.

Looks like I'm pretty late to this party, but:

The idea was to make a Platonic solid by joining discs--each connection represents the midpoint of an edge (you could probably do this for any shape where all faces had the same distance from the center to the edge, but platonic soldis are the simplest of these).  This shape is a 20-sided icosahedron without the top 5 sides.  Each one is two CDs glued together with holes dremeled at three equidistant points around the edge.  I used metal rings to join them together, so it only holds its shape when it's hanging like this.  The top row of discs has their rings connected to a large ring the size of my light.  It doesn't really make rainbows, and the light is less effective with so many things covering it, but I have lots of other lights in the room, and I think it looks shiny anyway.

I've also played with sharpie-ing over the shiny surface, then scraping away the design I want.  I really like the way that turned out, but I don't have any good pictures of it right now.

Hiya people,

I am doing a project and need about 125 CD's. Do any of you think that the PC club or Staples would care if a 13 year old boy walked in and took a box (I mean a box) of them? I am trying a sclupture, If anyone can tell me which store would be best to take the CD's from here are the stores nearby that give them out:

Home Depot
Barnes & Noble
Albertsons (a california grocery)

Thank ya much,


Sunny San Diego.
