CDs and DVDs not only have an interesting form, but they are also easily malleable which makes them good to use in a wide variety of projects.

Cut them in half to make half-moon shapes that will be used to make a case (pencil case or makeup case, for example) in the shape of a watermelon. This fruit is so popular in summer because it is a fruit that allows us to hydrate while satisfying our hunger. It is the favorite fruit of many.

EVA foam (DIY foam) will allow you to do all kinds of DIY projects with these DVDs or CDs. Like the 2nd project, a makeup case in a form of unicorn. EVA foam is very fun to use for arts and crafts, because you can color it with makeup, such as eye shadows or blushes.
