New life for discarded CDs, plastic containers

I am always looking for ways in which discarded CDs headed for the waste bin can be reused. Recently, an old CD and another item of plastic waste,  a medicine container, came together nicely to become a pen stand.

It will stay steady even if it gets heavy.

Here’s what the result looks like.

The only material used was rubber adhesive compound available in most stationery stores.

This may not be a terrific invention, but I am keeping two items out of the bin. In the process, I also discovered that CDs can be used as a stabilising base for anything that tends to topple over.

If you have any ideas about CD reuse, I would love to hear them.
