This is used to be .. CD

Hi friends,

I usually do my crafts items with products available at home. I preserve all wedding invitations, greeting cards, used can, bottles etc. Hope you can imagine my cupboard.....:)

I found many old CDs at home. We were not playing those for quite some years. Accumulated it in box to try for some crafts later.When Lulupu announced the transformation challenge i was happy to take out those CD and do some design with leftover paper coils.

Here is my work

This can used as Wall decor, Rangoli & Wall hanging

Planning to have a candle light dinner at home. This will actually give you a pleasnat mood.
Materials used:

Used CD
Paper strips - Aadyaa originals & Itsy Bitsy
Beads,Rhinestones & Glitter glue  - Local shop
Candle & Foam flowers - Itsy Bitsy

Many pictures are on the way. Will post many pictures tomorrow.

Submitting this entry to Lulupu's challengeArtst Crafty Mom & Anything but a card.

  1. Thanks Shylaashree!

    this is really interesting! Cannot see the CD anymore!
    Please link back to our challenge to participate :)

  2. Nice way to transform a simple CD into a work of art. Keeping all the little things, the greetings cards, the colourful papers and the little bits for future use is definitely hard to resist for any crafter:) have a huge collection of knick knacks myself.

  3. Wonderful way to recycle CDs - Thank you for sharing. I saw you on MIM - My entry is #32 if you'd like to check it out :)
