Get Those Old Records Off the Shelf!
Cheryl Ball and I got his fabulous idea a while back about using our 'retro' fabrics and craft products we'd collected over the years. We combined them with things from our youth and transformed them into something functional and different – creating a whole new look for old. That's when Still Crafty After 50 came to be.
Well, we got this gig to appear on our local tv station and I came up with the idea to make a fountain from melted records. It was a hit! We have since recorded a how-to video entitled How to Create a Record Fountain and it has over 7,000 hits on YouTube. Check out the video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqS_kM2gBlc
So, we thought, why not make other things from records. And our new ebook was born - Get Those Old Records Off the Shelf. This ebook lets you get those old records off the shelf...out of grandma's attic, out of storage, wherever they are and take a spin on creativity!
Records only take a couple of minutes to melt in an oven and can be shaped easily into fantastic projects.
Get Those Old Records Off the Shelf ebook includes photos and instructions to make a Record Fountain, Record Clock, Record Cake Stand, Record Birdfeeder, Record and Album Cover Placesetting including napkin rings, tablerunner and placemat, Record and Album Cover Jewelry, Bowl, Record Album Cover Trays, Record Mail Sorters, Record Album and Cover Room Divider, Record Vase.
