As I was creating decoration ideas for Vacation Bible School this year, I heard that is was possible to cut stars out of CDs. I was shocked! I told my associate and we raced to the church kitchen to test this theory. To our amazement, it worked! Here’s how to do it:
- I rounded up some old CDs left over from outdated curriculum.
- Using a start pattern, I traced around the star with a Sharpie marker.
- Dip the CD into boiling water until is becomes more pliable. It only takes a few minutes.
- Cut out the star shape with scissors, but pay attention and be careful because the CD is hot.
Note- If the CD begins to show small cracks, place it back in the water to heat up slightly.
