Vintage, retro things have always caught my eye. That’s what drew me to this awesome record album cover box made by Leah at Zombies Wearing Helmets.  I’ve used covers to make notebooks before, but I like this idea even better!  It makes a great catch-all for random clutter (perhaps that stack of craft magazines next to your couch) and would also be a great housewarming or graduation gift for someone with nostalgic design sensibilities.  I see stacks of albums every time I go to Goodwill, and it’s also yard sale season, so finding just the right covers to make your box should be a snap.  [how to make a record album cover box]

Project estimate:

  • 5 record album covers, on hand or about $5 and up
