This works with vinyl - should works with CD's, they're heat-injection molded polycarbonate. Set the oven on a low temperature, and rest your cd on a temperature resistant positive mold. (like a cylinder supporting the outer edges of the cd) Heat in oven, keep an eye out for the plastic softening. Once it is bowing slightly, pull it out, and press the cd into the shape you want.

Make a form out of something non-melty (wood springs to mind). Use a hairdryer, or a heat gun if you have one, to heat the CD until it softens (not dripping soft, flexible soft), and let it ooze into the form.
