Swirly, Shiny, Fun!!
I have placed a link credited to Secretlifeofabionerd from Youtube. If you dont know her I highly suggest you look her up! She is also appearing on Threadbanger now!
It took me actually a few days to finish this with charging the drill and having to do other things so 5 hours is a rough estimate in time.
I hope you all like this and if have any questions or if I somehow left something out please feel free to comment or message me :D
Much Love <3

Place your CD on a board or a hard steady surface that you dont mind if it gets holes in and start to carefully drill holes in about half an inch apart. Try to stay maybe 1cm into the CD enough so that a jump ring can still fit on.
I have a lot because at the time I didnt realize I didnt want them so close or so many and my plans and ideas changed as the project went on :D
Then after that if your drill is still charged enough make one hole into your aluminum mirror pieces or whatever you want to have dangling from your ribbons.
I dont have a picture of this step sorry but its pretty self explanatory I hope :D
You are then going to want to cut pieces of ribbon that get steadily longer and longer to have the "layered" look. I did it by 1 and a half inches. My first was 2 and a half..my next 3 and a half, 4 and a half, and so on until I got to about 15 and a half inches I believe.
Im sorry for not having steps of this.
I then just folded a little piece on both end of the ribbon around the jump rings and glued it together. You can use elmers glue, hot gun, tacky glue, or whatever. I used Krazy Glue
For the swirling ribbons:
I have 4 short ones and 4 long ones. Take 4 circle pieces of fabric for the long swirls and place them on top of each other and cut into it going around and around until you cant cut anymore.
The same for the short swirled ribbons of fabric but only smaller cut circle pieces of fabric
I recommend got to this link if my instruction was confussing:
It is Secretlifeofabionerd's video from Youtube The part you want is at time 2:07min but I def. recommend watching the whole video and all her videos. She is very talented
