Every little bit of plastic we recycle and reuse makes a difference, so here is a crafty little idea how you can make a difference, by reusing your CD boxes as photo frames.
You will need:
Clear plastic CD covers
Prestik or double sided tape
Step 1: Prepare the CD covers
Remove the paper inserts and the disc tray from the CD box. The easiest way to do this is when the box is open, place your thumb on the corner of the box (next to the hinge) and press downwards. This will pop open the corner of the box. If necessary, wash the empty CD case with soap and warm water.
Step 2: Cut the Photos to size
Using your pencil and cutting knife, carefully cut the photos to fit the case. The width should be 14cm, and the height 12cm.
Step 3: Insert the photos into the boxes
Insert the photo into the CD box with the picture downwards. Once the photo is snugly in place, pop the disc tray back in again as this will keep the photo firmly in place.
Step 4: Display the photos!
Using prestik, arrange your CD photo frames on your wall. Be creative, you could use one large photo, and cut it into smaller 12 x 14cm blocks, and arrange them into a square, or several individual images arranged as a collage.
Stand back and enjoy!
