3.5" Floppy Disk Into Record Player Greeting Card Project

We're afraid to ask if some of you still remember 3.5" floppy disks. But if you happen to have a few of the archeological technology remnants still around, wasting away to oblivion, how about this cool DIY idea using the 3.5" floppy disks for a turntable-style greetings card (thus revealing your backwards-tech cred even further)...

Wendy of Build/Make/Craft/Bake came up with the geeky reuse project and gives an excellent pictorial step-by-step walk through.

Besides a collection of floppy disks, you'll need a screwdriver to pry open the floppies, scissors, hole punches
blank greeting cards or folded cardstock, small brads, cardstock or corrugated paper for the record player arm, and embellishment to snazzy up your disk to turntable stationery. As Wendy notes, you can finally ignore everyone's warning and touch the floppy disk and not get in trouble!
