  • Scrolling CDs

    Has anyone tried scolling ornaments from CDs? I know a couple of years ago there was an article about how to do it in one of the magazines. I'm guessing it's like cutting plastic, only thinner. I've got a great big ol' pile of AOL cds that a friend decided she would collect for me

    Instead of throwing them in the trash I thought I would go ahead and try cutting a few out and give them as gifts. The secretaries here usually do something small, in the $5 range. I figured this was better than that - free, except for the blade and my labor.

    Just wondering if anyone had any experience. Thanks

    that sounds like a good idea. You could also cut slots halfway through the cd's and then you could put two or more cd's together for a more 3D effect.

    I would guess that you might want to use masking tape on both sides of a cd before cutting them, or you might get some chip out.

      Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

      Welcome! John! From Reno NV. A long time 788 user (I'm94) I'm sure you will get many happy hours from the repairs you placed on the machine.

      I'm 74, retired from the commercial dimensional advertising world. (carved and routed signs).

      I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
