Ooh! Also want to share with you the really awesome stamp set I bought from my GF Jean who is a CTMH (Close to my Heart) consultant. Don't you just love the words in this set?? I used Captured Moments for Cheryl's bday photo CD; pretty perfect for the occasion. To order this really awesome stamp set, you can contact Jean HERE...
I loved this CD holder so much (because it was super easy to make!) I made another one to send to my GF Michelle. Here's the one I made for Michelle.
Love this Greetings Farm image, I think her name is Dahlia? The sentiment is a Hero Arts clear stamp and the bling is also from a Hero Arts mini stamp set that came with this flower bling!
Because this holder is so easy to make, I want to share how to make it with you!
Start with a piece of cardstock 6 1/2" X 11". Score 1/2" from each side (portrait), turn the CS and score at 5 1/4" and 5 3/4" (landscape).
Make small cuts just up to the 1/2" score line as shown on both sides. Sorry my photo is using a different colored CS. I forgot to take a pic of this step when I was making the yellow holder...
Place adhesive as shown.
Adhere the sides.
Adhere the sides.
It should look like this when you adhere both sides.
For the cover, cut a piece of DP 5" X 5 1/2". Score at 3 1/2" and 4".
Add adhesive to the small flap as shown.
Adhere to box.
Put a strip of adhesive on the inside of the flap.
Add a piece of ribbon over the adhesive to make a handle.
Then, add a small piece of velcro. Here I added the image on a circle so I placed the velcro on the circle.
Fold the cover closed so that the other portion of the velcro sticks to the box.
That's it! You can make this box any size by following the same instructions with smaller cardstock.
