This semester I made door tags, or as we call them at John Carroll, door decs, out of old CDs. After gathering up old CDs (like those AOL ones everyone has gotten in the mail) and getting new ones at the post office, I printed each of my residents names on a retro looking (rounded off edges) rectangle with Harlow Solid Italic font. After cutting it out, I glued other shapes, like more retro squares/rectangles and ovals, onto the shiny side of the CD. I then traced out some shapes for contrast, and then put the name somewhere on top. The result was an awesome looking door dec that could easily be held up by 2 pieces of blue tape! It was a great way to recycle all of those unwanted CDs, and my residents love them!
