Recycled CD Crafts: Colorful Birds

As CD’s and DVD’s become obsolete, recycled CD crafts will become more popular. I’ve been making things from old CD’s for years now, and these colorful birds are just one example. We still own a DVD player, but it’s stuffed in a closet somewhere and hasn’t been used in a long time. In this age of Netflix and streaming videos, the DVD is on its way out. Same goes for CDs as people download games and software programs directly to their devices. There’s just no future for those round discs, just like cassette tapes, VHS tapes and yes, even 8-tracks that came before them.
