    i've made scrapbook and photo albums out of them! you just separate the two, make some holes, add rings.

    or you can make a journal cover by using half

    you could make purses out of them, similar to the vintage-magazine ones you see everywhere. make a purse out of clear vinyl or some sort of see-through material, and slip the covers in between the front and the inside lining (which could be a vintage fabric, another cover, or whatever). maybe i'll do that this weekend...my mom recently brought a huge crate of records over that she bought for my boyfriend at a yard sale. he of course doesn't like all the records but there are some great covers.

    you could also scan in the photos, print them out on iron-on inkjet paper, and iron them onto tee-shirts or a skirt...cute!

    buy one of those shower curtains that have photo slots, and put pieces of the record covers into the slots for a one of a kind shower curtain...that would be a cool housewarming gift.

    not really crafty, but you can buy 12" square frames and make them art, which is especially cool looking with vintage records.

    Got an idea a long time ago from somewhere about doing a room divider out of them. Attach together with key rings or large jump-rings, then hang them from the ceiling. Oh, how I wished I'd had a room to divide...

    You could make a clock from the album covers if they're interesting or so bad they're good.

    You could make them into book marks.

    Cut them to make a puzzle and give to a little kid.

    Make magnets out of the interesting bits.

    Use them to store you delicate craft paper?

    Hope you post your bowls and whatever you do with the covers!
