Does anyone know of any crafts that you can make from record albums, besides a bowl? Thanks.

I took the 45 records and used them around a round mirror used it like a frame.
I have also seen where the have taken the record album and made jewelery out of them, mostly earrings.
I recently saw where someone cut the center part of the record out that has the paper label on it & used them for coasters.
I saw them folded about 1/3 up and then mounted on a wall to hold mail. It looked really cool. You could even fold them and flip them over, hang them upside down to use as a small shelf.
I turned the records into wall clocks and turned the actual album cover into notebooks. Not sure if I have a pic of the clocks I made, but here are a couple of samples of the Record Album Cover Notebooks I made. I actually bought a notebook for 10 cents (back to school sales) and revamped the front and back covers with the album covers.
There are neat clocks you can make from old records.

The inside sleeves of the album, I cut them to size and inserted them inside the notebook. It's the first two pages when you open the notebook. This is page 1 of the notebook.

I recently saw a wide bangle with beads attached that was made from a record.
Here's an example. The one I saw had beads and buttons attached with wire through small holes in the bangle.
