Separate the pieces of the CD. The inner circle plastic won’t be used for this project- just the back and the front. Take your template and outline the shape. Then take your craft knife and score the plastic.

If you want to break the plastic easily YOU MUST SCORE AND SCORE AND SCORE (trace that pattern with your knife over and over again). If you don’t you will be in for a rough night.

Once you have 11 pentagons you can start taping the object together. I placed my tape on the outside so it would stop the hot glue from bleeding through the cracks.

Fold the object and start gluing along the lines.

Once it’s all dry- spray paint and you’re done.
