Record Album Decorative Boxes


LP Boxes (22)

So as you may know, I have been using vintage LP record album covers to make spiral-bound notebooks. In most cases, this means I have the actual records left over, so I wanted to find fun, creative things to do with them, as well. So I took advantage of their round shape and center hole, to decorate the top of round hatboxes and add a little handle.


For handles, you can use cabinet door knobs — Hobby Lobby has some really cute ones. Or you can look through junk drawers to find other knobs off things, that could be recycled for this purpose.

I try to match the handle to the design of the record label.

Sides of Boxes

To decorate the sides of the boxes, I used sheet music or in one case, some of the paper liners that had colorful advertisements for other records of the era.

I trimmed out the edges with ribbon that coordinated with the overall design of the box.
