Remember when CDs were a luxury instead of a necessity? Back when they held things like music instead of documents and work files?
I, for one, admit to teetering piles of obsolete CDs that will probably never see the inside of a computer again. I’ll skip over the frustration of how wasteful they are, and zip right to the conclusion: recycle your old CDs through one of these places and turn some of the leftover cases into little tabletop art displays that double as candleholders.
Once the telltale edges of the cases are covered in ribbon, no one is the wiser that this wasn’t picked up in some artsy, in-the-know boutique. But I’m such a dork that I'll take any chance to blurt out, Isn’t this cool? I made it from CD cases!
Step-by-step instructions and images here. When you're done, put a candle inside a glass votive and place inside the cube.
