Steps

  1. 1
    Now you will make the template that you'll use to cut the hologram pieces out of the CD case.
    Start off by drawing a line right down the middle of the page. Next, draw a 1cm line at the top. Move 3.5 cm from the top line and indicate a marker. At this point, draw a 6 cm long line (3 cm on each side). Go ahead and connect these lines with corresponding diagonals.

    We show you what happens if you try to break the piece out before you've cut deep enough through the CD case.
    You can see in the image how the piece we attempted to break out is cracked in the middle because we thought it was ready to be detached. Make sure you do not do this. As we were pushing out the corner of the template, it cracked. Just keep in mind that the CD case is thin and need to be cut thoroughly before detaching. Be very gentle when you push on the piece to break it out.

    Once you've cut through on all of the edges of the template, you can gently push through and break the piece out.
    Remember to be careful around the edges.

    Now that the four sides are cut out, we will tape them together using clear scotch tape.

    Now that the CD case hologram is made, take your smartphone and search "Hologram" on YouTube.
    Choose one of the videos that says "Pyramid Hologram Screen Setup" Once you've found the video, put your screen in landscape format and place it on a flat surface. Take your hologram device and line up its edges with the edges displayed on the screen.

    Make sure that you have a dark lighting atmosphere because the hologram projection will work best with the least amount of light.
    You will be able to see the hologram at eye level with your phone. Try turning up the brightness on your phone as high as possible for the best results.
