Nine DVD and CD Recycle Reuse Tutorials. I started looking for recycling ideas when I realized I had hundreds of DVDs that didn’t render correctly in Premier and were worthless. When I started looking for ideas for recycling components of CDs and DVDs I had no idea there would be so few that I would actually want to do (and I didn’t include the impossible or impractical in this list like the CD greenhouse). Here are a few I did like:
- DIY Mosaic Mirror Frame (Cut Out + Keep) here.
- DIY Book Clutch from a DVD case (craftzine) here.
- DIY CD Jewel Case Mural using one of my favorite programs: Rasterbator - google it to find amazing images online (Instrucables) here.
- DIY Mirrored Collar Using CDs (aetienne.net) here.
- DIY Travel Dry Erase Board with tissues and pens inside (A Creative Cookie) here.
- DIY DVD Color Pencil and Paper Carrying Case (Handmade by Stacy Vaughn) here.
- DIY CD Jewel Case Desk Calendar with 2012 Calendar PDF Download (craftzine) here.
