How To Bend CDs/DVDs

NOTES: Use CDs that have no paper or ink on them. The candle wick needs to be long so it gives a high flame. You may want to do this outside as there will be a small amount of odor. The soot wipes off with a tissue!

Napkin Holder Instructions

Mark two of your CD or DVDs about 1.5″ in from an end.  If you mark it further in than that then normal napkins will not stand up in it easily.  After you mark your CDs bend them as instructed above using a candle.
