Second step:

Cut out the rectangle and fold it in the middle of the long side so that both halves are exactly on top of each other. Over the kink, you can glue a strip of the fabric tape from the outside for reinforcement.

Third step:

So that the CD can not slip around, the CD case is provided with a holder made of sponge rubber. Place the CD on the sponge rubber and trace the hole in the middle of the CD with a pen. Cut the foam rubber circle so that the pencil mark is still visible on the circle. This will make the sponge circle a little bit bigger than the hole and will hold the CD later.

Now you stick the circle in your CD case. It is best to insert the CD into it once before and mark the place where the circle should sit. When the glue has dried, you can put the CD on the sponge cake.
