Make a Mini Greenhouse from Recycled CD Cases

This clever photo led me to this excellet tiny recycled greenhouse. What a use for the boxes of CD cases that I refuse to throw away. 

Materials: Four compact disc cases

1. Remove the front (the clear part) from three of the cases.

2. Tape or glue the three cases in a box shape, and then add the final case on the back, as in the photo.

3. Help your little seedlings thrive by placing the greenhouse over the plant, using the lid as necessary.

I've seen everything from wall murals to birdhouses, but I think this is my fav.  Looks like you could mod it to fit in a window ceil.  I've got hundreds of empties laying around that I've been looking to do something with since converting to binder-style cd cases.
