A while ago I was sitting around wondering what to do with an empty CD container/carousel. Some containers look so well crafted you hate to throw them away. Since I don't have a 3D printer, I like to keep certain containers that, lend themselves to projects I have yet to conceive. No, I am not a hoarder, my house is just too small. Just kidding.
Back to the matter at hand. I love kinetic toys so I thought it would be interesting if I could turn this into some sort of kinetic toy. Since this container was round I thought a horse carousel might work. Below are the steps I took to craft it.
Here is What you will need:
Empty CD Container
Two CD's that you don't mind destroying. .
Hot Glue and gun.
Four wood dowels 3 inches in length. Approximately a quarter inch in diameter or slightly smaller.
and some tape.
Orange cellophane (optional)
Step 1: Getting Started
Find some pictures of horses online and print them out. I had to import the pictures I found into Adobe Photoshop and reduce them to 3 inches high before printing. I also, Taped a small section of cardboard on the back to add some rigidity.
