Do you ever get those annoying internet CD's in the mail? Tired of throwing them out? Well, don't. I decided to try something with them and it worked! I used them to make playing card holders!

Simply take two CD's and put drops of super glue on the lower half of one of them. Press the two CD's together for a minute, then let it sit out and continue drying thoroughly. You now have playing card holders - make one for all the card players in your family! See the picture, they're cute!

You could even put something in the hole, like maybe a cut dowel rod of that size, for people who have arthritis to be able to hold cards without having to grip it. Just let the rod poke thru, and it could rest on their hands. Just an idea.

This is a fabulous idea! My little girl has small hands and when we play any card games requiring you to hold a lot of cards, she has trouble. I found some of these CD's free at the grocery store. So I'm gonna make a couple of these soon!

I love to recycle and think I am going to make extra ones to drop off at old folks homes and the intermediate schools for challenged kids so they won't go to waste anymore. You wouldn't beleive how appreciative they will be.

That is an absolutely great idea! I will make one for my little girl as she has trouble holding a lot of cards in her hand. Actually I have some nice Hoyle card holders that someone gave me as a gift once. We let her use one and then later we saw she had stuck a toy in between and even wrapped a cord from a play necklace and had the spring in between totally sprung so the card holder was useless! I will make her one or two of these and then I am not out much (just time) if it gets ruined. Those AOL CD's are free, I see them at our post office and grocery. Just free for the taking! Perhaps your kids don't need them but Amanda has small hands plus I use a card holder some too....When I played

Canasta it helped me because sometimes it can be hard to fan out so many cards and hold onto them...you don't wind up with a cramp in your hand using a holder.

this is a great idea...my friend has also taken plastic lids, (sm coffee cans, etc.) and sewed a button in the middle, on both sides , and you can also, paste an old card (cut) on the front and back..

thanks for this idea...

Wonderful Idea for nursing homes, rehabilition hospitals, anywhere people have difficulty holding things because of injured or arthritic fingers/hands. Terrific
