Hello! In this tutorial I’ll show you a way
to recycle a vinyl record into an organizer you
can put it on your desk or shelf and is just a cool way to organize all those paper goods this also makes a great gift for someone
who really likes music to start you will need record second-hand stores or libraries at a
really low price or check with your friends or family to
see anyone has some old records that they don’t mind getting rid of and it comes with a cool sleeve don’t toss it just yet these are great for recycling into book covers check out this playlist for some binding ideas and just substitute the cover with the album sleeve then you will need a box which is tall enough for the record to hang over the depth is up to preference depending on how much stuff you plan to put in your organizer a piece of paper that is large enough to
cover the record some tape and iron. Now let’s bend the record Put your iron to the lowest setting. It’s
possible that records release chemicals when they’re in really high heat so just to be safe keep your iron on lowest
setting put the record on the box and tape it to
hold it in place place the paper on top and carefully iron the middle section first to make
it mallueable then focusing on the edge which is going to hang over
make sure you aren’t keeping the iron in the same spot for too long just keep
sweeping the iron back and forth you can check out a record as you go and if you get any paper stuck to it or melted areas that means that
you’re keeping the iron on one spot for too long the paper can be wiped away later but
just use this as an indicator so that you can adjust how you’re ironing it. When the end has folded over move the paper to the other side and
repeat the same process after the record has cooled off remove the tape and you have a new
organizer! The records are actually sturdy enough to hold all my papers and I think these are fun alternative to
regular desk organizers if you like this video click that LIKE
