Neat craft for the kids. Made a spinner from old cd's. Kids would love this. And make a good gift for Easter baskets and maybe even to sell at craft shows. Use you imagination. lol

I do a copy and paste and then email it to myself. Then I can print it out. Or save into your favorites and then you can 'visit' the site any time you want.

Oh...the patterns...I tell you I'm a dunce lately. I think you use your own patterns. I would trace around a cd disc, then trace it onto the paper you want to use and trim it down about an 1/8th in all around. Or how ever you want to decorate the 'spinner'.

Did this help?

Wonder if there's a way to use a small marble? Put something or glue to make the hole smaller .. Don't have the shooter size just smaller ones...
That one with the red/white stripe... Probably would make me dizzy... LOL

LOVE these!!!! We have made these in our after-school program with good results. A regular marble works just fine, too, and then you don't have to use a super tall cap to cover it. Our kids just drew on the cd with permanent marker, too.... these are a lot of fun for the kids to do....
