Recycle an old CD into a new turtle magnet for your fridge!
What you need
felt in dark Christmas green and a lighter green color
green acrylic paint
small amount of cardboard
green craft fun foam
magnet What you do
1. Trace the CD onto the darker green felt and cut out the circle. Set aside.
2. With green acrylic paint, paint the front of the CD completely and let the paint dry.
3. Cut a stop sign shape out of cardboard(this is an 8 sided shape – see the photo for details). Use this cardboard template to trace as many stop sign shapes of light green felt that you need to spell out your name, plus one more for the center of the CD.
4. Cut four green fun foam shapes for the legs – these are like large popsicle stick shapes, or rectangles with curved ends. Cut a similar, but longer shape for the head. You’ll also need to cut a triangle shape for the tall.
5. Glue the felt head, legs and tail to the unpainted back of the CD. Cover all these parts by gluing on the green circle that you cut out in Step 1 of this project.
6. Glue the goggle eyes on the top of the head.
7. Glue on enough stop sign shapes to spell your name, plus one stop sign shape in the center.
8. Spell out your name in fabric paint, placing one letter in each of the stop sign shapes, except the one in the center.
9. You can leave the center stop sign shape plain, or add a little design like the one in the photo.
10. After all the paint and glue is dry, glue a magnet to the back of Timmy the CD Turtle. Stick him on the fridge to make you smile or to hold a little note in place!

It became one of the project’s most popular international singles, peaking at #1 in over 10 countries (including Greece, Norway, Sweden and Ireland), #2 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart and number 4 on the Hot 100 in the US, #3 on the UK Singles Chart, the Top 5 in Austria, Germany, New Zealand, Netherlands and Switzerland, and the Top 10 in Italy and France.
During one recording session, Mike Rutherford first created the main riff of the song he called “Heavy A Flat”, to which Phil Collins suddenly improvised “I Can’t Dance!” Originally the band didn’t think of it anything more than a joke, because the song was too simple, too bluesy and completely unlike Genesis’ style. Tony Banks said in an interview “It was one of those bits you thought was going to go nowhere. It sounded fun, but wasn’t really special”.
It wasn’t until Banks added the keyboard sound effects that the song took on a whole different feeling, with a slight edge of humour in it, which made the band decide to record it.
