Several years ago on Getty someone (I guess Kris Fontes) posted a link
to a book made with floppy disks -

Here are directions for a notepad too -

Subject: [teacherartexchange] old 5 1/4 inch floppy disks

I've been purging my basement.....a mammoth task really.....
I have 'found' about a hundred 5 1/4 inch floppy disks which I'm about
dispose of.....unless I can come up some cool art/craft to do with
them.....I do run a course called 'non-traditional media' so if I can
of something, that would be the course....
Any ideas??? All of the floppies are black.

And just becuase you want to know, I have a fully operational Commodore
complete with all the good old games! I also have a fully operational
Commodore 128 (but the 64 is better!)......all the discs that are for
disposal are 'educational' programs that are not that fun, or are
discs which are not needed.
