Mosaic CD Picture Frame
Step-by-step on how to make a recycled cd mosaic picture frame
This is a fun way to use up all your old cd covers, electronic computer components and even some buttons and beads. Not only will you be creating a special gift, but you will be helping the environment in a small way.
Most cd cases and cd's do not get recycled in South africa. They usually end up in landfill as there is not enough understanding of how plastics can be recycled or where to take your recycleable products to.
There are big companies that do recycle the plastic when they get it but there is a large gap between the person with the spare cd cases and the company needed them for recycling. As recycling is still a fairly new concept in South Africa and we are not sure how to get these cases to the big recycle companies they mostly just get thrown out.
Next time you planing on doing a fun craft with your kids you could make them a really nice picture frame for thier room or even as a gift for thier teacher.
You can use any cd case for this project, the thick or thin ones work just as well.
