17 Amazing Things You Never Knew You Could Do With Your Old CDs

Since pretty much all phones second as music devices nowadays, the use for CDs has all but diminished. We all have stacks of CDs sitting around, doing nothing but collecting dust, because we’ve already transferred the files to our iTunes. You could get rid of all of those CDs, OR (and I’m much more partial to this) you could use those CDs to make some pretty awesome crafts. Because of that beautiful, reflective, rainbow-catching back, a CD can make for some really great DIYs!
