C.D. Case Tutorial, Christmas D.I.Y. Day Two

Hey everyone! I'm back today with a super fast, super cheap and super easy craft that you can make with supplies you probably have on hand already.  I made mine from stuff I already had so it cost nothing out of pocket.  These make a great cover for a special mixed C.D. or C.D. of pictures you have taken over the year or maybe a D.V.D. of your old Christmas movies.  The key to this gift is the cover, the more special you make it, the more special your gift seems.  This can be a totally free gift for somebody but if you make it really special and personal it will seem priceless.  I apologize for the crummy photos, some were taken late last night as I finished this project.

Your supplies; assorted 12x12 scrapbook paper, stickers and other embellishments, paper glue, 1 1/2 inch hole punch (optional)  scissors, your C.D. and some ribbon or sting to tie it up with.

If you have a large hole punch place your folded paper in halfway making sure you are centered and punch.

Here is the fun part.  Embellish and embellish some more.  I used stickers, paper cutouts, letters, markers, etc.
