Step 1: The Corners

The corners:
First of all line the protractor up with the middle of one of the cd's and use the pencil to mark a line every 90 degrees to the edge of the cd.

Step 2: The Lines

The lines:
Now simply use the ruler to make a square out of the four dot's in the corners
On each of the lines Measure and mark 5cm from the left corner.

Step 3: The Cut

The cut:
And finally cut the 5cm line out.

Repeat 6 times!

see pictures if you dont get it.

Step 4: Imposible to Easy

Impossible to easy:
It is extremely hard if not impossible to put the cube together like this with out breaking it so here is how to:

With 4 cds make a cube that is missing both it top and bottom.
Then with the 2 remaining cds complete 2 of the cuts opposite to each other.

Before you finish put the light's in the middle !!!!

And simply slide the last 2 cds on to the top and bottom of the cube and you are finished
