Step 1: 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
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
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
