These are sun catchers, made out of old CD's. You can use puffy paint and fill with paint too. I liked using a exact-o knife and cutting things out.

Step 1: Prepare the CD
Using a old CD - please don't use an important one!
Make a tiny scratch at the edge of the CD. This will help the tape pull off the covering.
Cover the entire CD with tape.
Step 2: Pull Off Tape
This is the best part! Carefully pull back the tape (at an angle) and remove the covering of the CD.
Step 3: Pick Your Design
I pulled this one off the internet. I made a copy of it, then cut it out.
Step 4: Fill in the Pieces
This is a different design. But as you can see I cut the pieces of paper and layed them on the CD. Don't worry if you aren't that great with the exact-o knife. I threw a lot of pieces away that didn't fit.
You can either deco podge the top or instead of a CD just use paper and laminate the whole thing. Makes a cute coaster.
Step 5: Enjoy
I also made this larger one. Boy, the larger ones are a lot easier.
Step 6: If You Use Paint...
These are pictures of what the Sun Catchers look like with paint.
