One thing I haven't tried, But I have seen, Is you take Cans from monster, Or a coke or Something, Then you Cut the back and Flatten them, & Then cut holes all around the Can, Finally you can Sew the cans together to make Coke can Armor. I figure maybe if you paint it and Use them like Armored Patches that might be Cool.

I make my own cassettes, create my own j-cards. I also record some stuff on my cassette player and then hand it to my friends. :)

I really enjoy making bottle-cap-pins, mostly bc it's pretty easy and cheap af, I also like making my own cds (as in burning them, mostly those of bands whose records aren't sold anywhere anymore)

I love drawing on used shirts that are either thrown out/nobody wants. I have a couple examples on my profile! I recently started making shirts for bands that I really like because tour merch can be $$$

I found that the metal ends of pens can be used as studs if you find the right size screw to secure it! That, and soda tabs are super useful. They can be made into chainmail, chains, bracelets / chokers, or just sewn onto clothing. 

If you're looking for durability when sewing patches, I recommend fishing line or dental floss (or just good quality sewing / embroidery thread)

my current fav is putting masking tape in the shape of a spiderweb on an old t shirt and cutting out the spaces in between to get a really cool design! im also planning on painting some shirts with bleach

Like everyone else I love the good old beer bottle cap and can tab buttons/pins. More than that though I like making rings with paperclips or nail polish. Real simple and fun, and I just love rings. Oh, and I also really like custom jewelry in general.

i collect pop tabs and like making jewelry with them. i also saw a cool video idea where someone took their worn-out socks and made patches with them, which would be fun with any socks with anything on them (i have a lot of cat-themed socks so i bet i could make cat-themed patches lol).

idk how to reply to specific people and idk if you can but to the VX person that just posted, at the top there's an insert image button, so i think if you wanted to share photos, you would have to upload it to a site like imgur or something and then include the url. the insert image button is inbetween the insert link and paragraph formatting buttons if you don't know which one it is :)
