Christmas Music CD’s

Hi Everyone – last week on the Artfull Crafts blog the theme was Stocking Stuffers and Scraps. You can see my complete post here and be sure to take a look at what the other ladies have come up with too!

Crate Paper “Snow Day” CD
OK – so who doesn’t love Christmas Music!?  Also – who doesn’t love this fabulous Snow Day Collection from Crate Paper. It has the most gorgeous colours and like all the Crate Paper products – they are of the highest quality. I have used the papers and additional elements to create this CD for my sister in the UK.

I have decorated a plain tin for the CD using papers, border and phrase stickers and die-cut elements from the Snow Day Collection. 


I have printed a playlist for the inside cover and I made a folded paper holder for the CD

The fabric brads are the perfect attachment for lifting the CD out, not to mention they are just gorgeous!  

I also just a got a new printer which prints directly onto CD’s so I was desperate to give that a whirl too. I was a bit naughty and just copied and pasted an image of the Crate Paper from the internet (don’t tell!)

Kaisercraft “Christmas Carnival” CD
One of my other fave Christmas Collections (and fave collections of all time in fact) has been Kaisercrafts’ “Christmas Carnival” from last year. 

I have again decorated a plain tin for the CD using mostly bits and pieces from the Christmas Carnival Collection. The star is from an old Thickers pack and I have stamped music notes over it using StayzOn ink. I have been waiting to use that musical note Cuttlebug die for ages!

The buttons from the Christmas Carnival embellishment pack were great for lifting the CD out. 

Hope you enjoyed these – remember you have until tomorrow to enter my giveaway 🙂http://www.papervinenz.com/2010/11/19/exciting-news-plus-blog-giveaway/

    I 100% adore these!! You did such an awesome job. I feel like stopping crafting after seeing these. Thinking, will I ever make anything THIS CUTE?? I tried making something with a tin before and FAILED! What weight of paper did you use and how are you attaching it…did you trace and cut BEFORE you applied to tin or did you XACTO off the excess after you applied? Sorry for the million questions! I am just in awe of this project!!
    Oh and if US can enter your drawing..I am in for 2 chances. Oh I should have left multiple comments, not just one big one 🙂

    Hi – and thanks for your comments! I used the Crate Paper patterned paper and just cut a square half an inch smaller than the tin and rounded the corners. I tend to use solvent based glue for most of my projects mainly because any spillage can be just rubbed off with no trace. Cos of this you can glue right to the edges to get a really good stick! Your blog is great too – you have some very cool ideas!

    Those tins are very cute and great ideas for the hard to buy for 🙂 Where did you get your tins?

    all I'm saying is …you need my address to send me one!!! Fab!!!

    Solvent glue hmmmm – UHU (in the metal) tube is probably the best known one but I just had a look and it's not available in the US. I would guess maybe Helmars 450? Biggest clue is – does it say Highly Flammable on the bottle – if it does – that's the good stuff!
    If you are in Australia/NZ – it's the Spotlight Crafterschoice glue with the purple label.

    Tins I bought cheapy on TM – but if you are in Timaru Rochelle – I am going to send some to Liz at Artfull Crafts. THANKS for all your comments everyone – I really appreciate them 🙂
