Rock 'n Roll is Here to Stay

So, although vinyl is rare now, back in the day that's how we got our music. They had these things called "records" and we listened to them at "the hop." Ok, I don't know that I went to a hop, but I do have a nifty little record project you can make, using an old diskette.

This card didn't make the cut for Paper Crafts, but I still like it. I have a bunch of old 3.5 diskettes from the dinosaur age of computing. I popped open a diskette and found this round, black, shiny disc shape. Presumably, this is where the info is stored, but as I am an English major, I don't know, nor do I really care, especially since no one uses these anymore. 

So, now they are craft items. I used the little circle to make my own mini record for this card. The record slides in and out of the sleeve I made with October Afternoon Cakewalk retro paper. The red cardstock circle is a punch and I used a regular hole punch to make the center. I used Hero Arts to stamp the sentiment and toothpicks and washi to make the flags. Fun! You can always add a greeting inside the card like "to an Oldie but a Goodie" or "to a Classic" or something similar. 

If you have some old diskettes like I do, you could make some records for a layout about your fave songs as a kid, even if you didn't listen to these things called "records." ha!

Have a good Wednesday, it's a scorcher here today! Swimming pool is calling!
