    The mini touch light has a strip you can pull off to attach it to things - pull it of and secure it and you may want to use the hot glue gun or the 9001 or other craft glue to secure it to the CD's.
    If you need to change the batteries, you can unscrew the bottom of the touch light from the base
    that is glued to the CDs.
