metal plant labels and floppy disks

Posted by xstradia (My Page) on

I had my first major trash to treasure break through.
I am going to use the metal flappy part of 3.5 floppy disks to make metal plant labels. I have figured out that I can use metal coat hangers to make the kind that stand up. Does anyone have any tightwad solutions on how to attach ones that I want to attach directly to the plant? Would the metal garbage bag twist ties work?
MOST OF ALL- What can I do with rest of the disk? I have about 100 or so and feel guilty throwing them all away.
ANY application- gardening or non will be useful.

what are you going to use to put the name on the metal?

Hope somebody has some great ideas for using those floppies. We have a bunch and I hate to throw them away!

RE: metal plant labels and floppy disks

I use old floppies as coasters, especially the red, blue, green, etc. ones. You could also use them to make quirky mobiles to give to computer-obsessed friends.
