Step 1: Supplies

1. CD cover (plastic kind)
2. Hot glue gun
3. Cardboard
4. Scissors
5. A BB (airsoft or metal)

Step 2: Cardboard Sizes for Inside of Maze

What cardboard into strips to make the inside of the maze. They need to be a 1/4 of an inch in height.

Step 3: Making the CD Into a Maze

Take out everything in the CD so it is see through all around. Then, as shown in the picture above put a strip of cardboard on the left side of the CD cover so the ball inside can't escape.

Step 4: Making the Internals of the Puzzle

Use the strips you cut out earlier to make the inside of the maze. Make it as simple or as complicated as you would like or you could just follow exactly what in the picture.

Step 5: Place the Ball Inside and Sealing the Puzzle Up

Put the BB inside the puzzle. After that you could even write on a designated start to finish on the outside of the cover. I didn't seal my puzzle up in case I wanted to change something but you can if you would like. Hope you enjoyed my DIY CD cover puzzle
