Does anyone have suggestions for old CD disks we received in the mail from AOL, etc.?
I have used some under vases, and some to put small photos of the children on. Thanks for any suggestions

I crochet covers for them and use them for coasters. They work well and look nice.

the people over at Garden Junk forum glue 2 together,
shiny side out and embelish them with beads and such and hang them outside as suncatchers...

We use them as clappers for windchimes. Looks prismatic in the sun.

This is what I do with mine.....make Cmas cards, suncathchers and hang them on my patio door or in my kitchen window. Now lets see if I can remember how to post pics here.

The old Aleene's craft show used to cut them into pieces with shears then make jewelry out of them.

You can buy the findings to make a clock out of them. They're also nice shiney side up underneath a candle. My daughter just hung them all from thread from her ceiling.

If you lay them in water and M/W about a minute, they look crackled. Kind of neat for card use. I did a blue one and then put a snowman scene on it. Looked really cool. Don't have it to post.

I want to cover them with paper that I have decorated by computer. Are there paper discs available or do I need to buy a program?

Here's one my sister just sent to me.....should be easy to come up with a pattern for it....

Hi I glued two together then drilled holes and did some string art on them like they do on cards, then used them as sun catchers.
Also crocheted around them and made doilies, just used the outer three or four inches of a doily pattern and used the hole as the six chain starting. If anyone wants pic email me.

I use them for target practice, since that's the only thing I shoot.

Saw on one of the craft shows a guy cut them in square, small pieces and glued them on a styrofoam ball. Made a nice disco ball. He put a dowel rod up the center with an eyehook on it to hang it. I had one in my window for years and it puts splashes of sunlight all over the room.
