Has anyone used old vinyl records?

kudzukweenAugust 8, 2008

I recently spotted some crafts made from old records, and I was wondering how you would cut them up. Would it be with a fine saw blade? I hadn't found any directions,just some pretty things I'd love to make for myself.

My DD has used them for a lot of things...
I am adding her etsy link, and she said just go to it and email her from there....she will answer your questions! She is a whacky redhead, but will be glad to share her knowlege with you!
Good luck!

Oh my goodnessssss :) Thanks so much njtomboy! I really like the purses, and the headband....ok, I loved all of it,lol! A lot of information there in those tutorials. I'm sorting through my crafts right now cleaning up some messes (unfinished projects) to get ready for some crafts made from records and aluminum cans.

Yeah... some have more info than others.. but they give you an idea of your options.

That's why I loved HGTV shows like B. Original, Treasure Makers and the old episodes of Decorating Cents.. even if I didn't like the projects.. I got tons of ideas from their techniques used! LOL

Have fun and post pics when you can!
