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.

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.
