Picture of Mini RCA Record Player
I had so much fun making this little record player. It would be a great band or music teachers gift. I am sure anyone would love this. I wished I had more floppy disks! I would make another one and dress it up with beads and make it even more realistic. This little record  player was made from office supplies for the Office Supply Contest. Follow through and I will show you how easy it was to make.

I took a picture of the RCA logo here: 
Printed it out and cut it out into the shape that I wanted. 
For the inside of the record player and the outside I printed from this link: and Here:


Step 5: Glue Black Pegs

Find the best view of the floppy disks and use all of them in the same direction throughout the rest of the steps.
There will be a back side and a front side. 
Glue the black pegs to the bottom of one of the floppy disks, let it cool slightly or it will melt the plastic. 
These will be the feet for the record player.

Step 6: Glue Floppy Disks

Glue each disk on top of the base of the record player alternating the colors.
You will use 5 full disk for the box and 1/2 disk for the record platform, this piece should have the bump. 
Glue the dog onto the center of the 1/2 disk.

Beautiful! Congratulations.

Thanks rimar! I thought it turned out pretty cute myself. If I get my hands on more floppy disks I will make them much better not being restricted to office supplies. I would have already done it but I don't have enough :(. Have a great day! Oh yeah and thanks for the lovely star! Sunshiine
