Altered Art: CD's

I’ve gotten lots of positive feedback from the other altered art articles I’ve written, so I guess I’ll keep them coming. Today we are talking about altering CD’s. You all have old disks lying around. Sometimes they come in the mail, others just stop working. Well, there’s no reason to throw them away. Instead, turn them into a work of art. There are a million ways to alter a CD. Here are a few examples of what you can make by altering a CD:

• Make Christmas ornaments for your friends and family. They'll love the fact that they're homemade and you'll love the fact that they're cheaper than the alternative!
• Add pictures of your family or friends for a very unique picture frame.
• Send an altered CD as an alternative to the traditional greeting card.
• Create a CD and attach it to your next housewarming gift as an unusual and beautiful tag.
• Combine several altered CD’s to make a unique photo album.
• Don't be afraid to decorate the CD case, as well, for the whole package. This makes a VERY impressive gift.

Have fun and be creative. And don’t worry—you won’t mess it up. Altering by nature is out-of-the-box and funky. I think you'll quickly realize just how addicting these things can get!
