Trash to Treasure: Turn your CDs into coasters

Back when I was in high school, I used to go through a lot of CDs, because my burner only worked when it felt like it.

Instead of throwing them away like a normal person might, I tried to think of what I could do with them. At the time, I didn’t have a good answer to that question. As a result, I now have a box full of CDs that don’t work.

I could just throw that box away, but I thought it would be kind of fun to use the CDs as coasters instead. This way, I can have guests over, offer them a coaster and receive a funny look that says, “You want me to put my drink on your CD collection?” Well, yeah.

This is probably the simplest tutorial I could give you, but I think the idea is really fun and worth a go. Once you have the CDs, you can put a few together in less than an hour.
