CD Case Diorama

CD dioramaHere’s one more recycle project – using a CD case, cardboard boxes, and dried beans.
1. Collect clean cardboard packages, such as those used for cereal, crackers, pencils and markers. Open them up and cut out simple vehicle shapes, along with mountains, trees and sun.
2. Glue a small amount of dried beans to the inside of a clear CD case with white glue.
3. I prefer double-stick tape to attach the cardboard to the CD as it keeps the shapes lying flat.

    What a cute idea!! I collect the CD cases for my students already. We use tissue paper, water and glue to make a *stained glass* case, and this would be a wonderful new project. I am a curb shopper and a few years ago I found 3 huge boxes of CD cases only…what’s left of these will definitely become dioramas now!

  2. Such a brilliant idea!

  3. love this idea! I’m a new art docent for my sons special needs class. Love the idea of the stained art, do you have any pictures of that?
    thanks for the wonderful site
