    Recycled Craft Ideas - CD case wall art

  • Diana Dancocks

    to think of all the hundreds, nay thousands, of cd cases i "donated" .... Traded in all your CDs for MP3s? Rather than tossing those plastic covers in the trash, where they'll likely linger for decades — most aren't recyclable — mount them on your walls with this resourceful project from Photojojo! Insanely Great Photo Projects and DIY Ideas ($21.99; Potter Craft). You'll need little more than 20 CD cases, a computer, Velcro tape, and, of course, a favorite photo. STEP 1: On a computer, open a high-resolution photo of your choice in an image-editing program like Adobe Photoshop. Resize the picture to 26½" x 18¼". Using a selection tool, divide the image into twenty 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" squares, then digitally cut and paste each square into a separate 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" file. STEP 2: Print out each document onto 5" x 7" photo paper. Trim off any white space. STEP 3: Pop out the interior section (the round piece that the CD snaps onto) of 20 standard jewel cases. Also remove the paper inserts. STEP 4: Carefully trace one photo segment onto a piece of thin cardboard and cut; repeat 19 times. Use double-sided tape to attach one piece of cardboard to the back of every photo segment; then slip each segment, image side up, into a CD case and close it. Repeat until every photo sits inside a case. STEP 5: With Velcro tape or mounting strips, affix the cases to the wall one at a time, making sure to arrange them so the photo lies in the right order and the cases almost touch.

Ruler Tabletop, pt 1 Try to get a variety of colors, but be sure they're all the same thickness. (For a 19- by 17-inch table, you'll need about 16 yardsticks.) Step 1: To figure out how best to align sticks, create a template of the tabletop by tracing it onto a sheet of paper. Arrange rulers on the template, marking where you'll need to cut so they fit width and length of table.
