    I think he means the CLEAR cd that comes on the top of the cd packs to protect the unburned cds. The pictures are of a clear cd. That's the one you cut the 2 circles from.

    This project is brilliant. I'm so excited about doing this at school with some kids who are definitely "hands-on" learners! 

    You get an A+ from me for this one!

    this kaleidoscope is great! easy and fun!

    wow this is realy cool! although i can tell english isn't your best language. im not trying to be rude though. good job!

    This is a really cool project. I'm super excited!

    I have grandkids, and I'd love to make some of these, but I missed the dimensions to cut the mirrors. Where do I find them?

    Is depends on the size of the tube

    Nice job. One small translation error - in step 6, you mean "strips", not "belts".
