    I used (I don't know what is it called) scissors that cut metal. And the count of CDs is
    approximate it depends on the size of dragon...

    Yes exactly, I have about 200 old CDs and don't know what to do with them. And this was the best way to use them.

    Sorry, I need to read more carefully (and not just be dazzled by the images). I see you said you used ~15 old CDs.
