My friend made some awesome boxes out of the record album cover, but I can't find the instructions! Does anyone know how these are made (I know that all I need is clear tape and a record cover) and if so, could you please post a tutorial? Thanks!

There are instructions in the book Pad: The Guide to Ultra Living. I have the book, and I dig it. There are other cool projects in there too (like making coasters out of resin, hanging lamps, etc). I can post a scan of the page that has the record album cover box instructions, but is that legal to do on these forums?

I'm not sure if it's "legal" but it would be much appreciated- I'm a poor college student who can't afford any other books than the ones I use @ school....Thanks!

These are the instructions I used:

(For some reason, the above link wasn't working properly.  Copy and paste into your address box and take out the space between www. and naughty)

For some reason craftster keeps hosing the URL for this site.  Try http://makeashorterlink.com/?M1E02570A and see if that works.

The key to success is careful measuring and cutting.  If you happen to have one of those rotary cutter sets, and you've got at least one blade that you don't mind using to cut paper, you're good to go.

Incidentally, since I am too lazy and/or impatient to put glue on and wait overnight, I used brown packing tape to adhere the flaps to the inside of the box, where they won't be seen.  I used a little double-sided mounting tape to make sure the outside edges were well stuck down.  This is a shallow box about 10" square across the top, and 3 1/2" deep.

Here's the result:

Gotta love those groovy '70s children's records.
