Inspired by another thread somewhere, I have read a couple of these, I made a CD post holder out of CD cases, origmai paper and hot glue (and a bit of sellotape!)



Heres one of the threads about this

I saw a fabulous lamp in the Washington Post made of 100s of CDs stacked on top of one another so you could only see the edges -- which looked like an exotic glass tube. The crafter ran a hollow metal rod through the middle and wired it with a lamp kit.

I think it was at MOSI that I saw the coolest thing made from old cds. They stacked up tons of cds in a spiral shape, going from the ceiling to the floor, and had a mirror at the bottom and the top. Looked like a never ending spiral staircase.. I doubt any of you have that many cd's though.

I've seen the same thing except that the craft put a glass rod through the middle: the whole thing lit up, top to bottom.

Or engrave a picture on them (on the back side, that one you shouldn't touch too much when they aren't destroyed yet) - it makes great light effects. Than you could again use it for almost anything. I tried it with the sharp tip of the thing you make circles with. (English really doesn't have one simple, unambiguous word for it?) It worked. But it was only an experiment, because I didn't have enough usless CD's, so I cannot show you my results. Wink
Here's the CD that inspired me:

The author says she used sewing pin. That thing I  used is easier to hold, like a pencil, especially when there is no graphite in it.

I'm sorry if it was written before. I didn't notice there were so many replies...

I used my AOL cd collection to make one of thoses beaded curtain things that hang in the doorway. It looks so pretty when the light hits it.

I believe you used something similar to a compass. (not a directional compass, but the kind used for drawing circles.)

Yes, that's it. But there's one special word for it in my language, while in English it is the same word for two different things. So I wanted it to be clear.

one day me and my friend took a cd and put it in a plastic bag and broke it into many little pieces and then put holes in some of the pieces and made some really cute earrings out of them and recently in art i had to decorate my sketchbook so i decided to break a cd and then make a heart into the broken pieces and glue them together and success it looked awesome :]
