Now I think I found something good to do with the covers.
Make your own custom box for your x-mas presents. (then the box itself is a present too.)
Step 1: Get Ready
- a record cover (bonus points if you find a x-mas one)
- clear packing tape
- the thing you want to put in the box
Step 2: Cut the Cover
Step 3: Size It Up
I'm making the bottom of the box 1st.
Position the book on the cover where you want it, and trace.
Step 4: Make a Border
Step 5: Cut and Fold
Then fold up the walls of your box, tucking the tabs you just cut inside.
Step 6: Tape
Put a piece of tape on the corner, and cut on the corners of the tape. Fold the tape down, and it makes a nice neat corner.
Step 7: Now the Top.
Make sure the lid is just a smidge bigger, so that it can fit on top of the box. Also make the height of the lid shorter than the height of the box.
Step 8: Your Done!
And it's groovy!
This is a great way to package anything you've made out of vinyl records. (coasters, jewelry, bowls) Or just throw in some candy or baked goods for a quick gift.
