Hell.. use both. windowscreen and cds.
Then people would call you a visionary and you'd get a feature in ELLE, a poo-load of money, your own label and a guy named Ernest who's willing to be your ottoman.

I hate logo overload on my lux items, so I'd hate them on my recycled ones too, i.e. tang and coke.

Good luck with the project though! And I think the CD idea is really cool!

I was wondering whether you'd mind if I used it. I've been thinking about it all day and I've come up with a few ideas/variations, but I wanted to make sure that you wouldn't mind first.
that's great that you got some inspiration from my idea
just make sure you give me credit sure i don't mind if you use it

luna what kind of designs/ideas did the people with the crappy cd bags have?

i've made a sample using the idea of the cds as sequins . . . but i'm not too crazy about it
i'm thinking along the lines of something inspired by indian abhla {mirrorwork}

One of them was cd's cut and butted up against one another.. basically a box with a handle.. it sucked

another was the container that lots of burnable cds come in... chopped the top off and made a hinge using a CD as the flap... it was a good idea.. but execution didn't work out so well.

there was one more where she hung a lot of cds off of a bag.. but it got heavy, fell, and broke.

so in essence.. it sucked too.

I still like the idea of your broken up pieces used as ornamentation... maybe you could show us a pick of your mock-up?

my sample sucked. it's messy & the cd pieces aren't as reflective as i'd like 'em
= / i gave up. i want it to work so bad.

i'm not sure. i might do something with mirrorwork idea.
i'm so confused.

My fiance, out of boredom I guess, made me a purse out of duct tape. He used black and red duct tape, giving it a striped appearance. It was actually not bad. He got the instructions on how to make it from Maxim Magazine. If you want, I could post a pic, hehe.
