Make N Take Monday, Week 2

This week's Make N Take Project is an Altered CD Holder with Tag.  I hope you enjoy this project.


CD Holder (the chipboard kind that you get with advertising CD's--can be found at Walmart)
Chipboard--cut to 4 1/2" x 4 3/4"
3 different Designer Papers cut to these sizes:  5" x 11"; 3 1/2" x 11" and 3" x 11"
Circle Punch
Sticker Labels--2
Strong Adhesive
Chipboard letters, sticker letters or Rubon Letters for the title (not shown)
Assorted Embellishments such as flowers, ribbons, bling, etc

Step 1:  Using a strong adhesive, adhere the 5" x 11" piece of designer paper to the front,  Make sure the CD Holder is centered beneath the paper:
Step 2:  Turn over and add adhesive to the edges of the designer paper. Then fold the edges in from each side and adhere to the CD Holder:

Step 3:  Using a circle punch, cut a 1/2 circle in the top of the Holder.  This is to help pull out the tag.

Step 4: Repeat this process with the second piece of designer paper (size 3 1/2" x 11"). Center this piece of paper over the first piece.
Step 5:  Again, repeat Step 3 with the third piece of designer paper cut to size:  3" x 11". 
Step 6:  To create the tag, cover the chipboard piece, front and back, with coordinating designer paper cut to the same size:
Step 7:  Add your embellishments to the tag.  I did a white square then a yellow sticker frame, flower sticker and word sticker.  Note:  do not use too many bulky embellies or it won't fit in the holder.

Step 8:  Add coordinating ribbons and a flower accent.  I stapled my ribbons onto the tag and then covered the staple with flowers and a button accent.  I left the back side of the tag blank to add a sentiment or the recipient (if there is one) can add a photo as well.  My holder doesn't have a "title" yet.  I'm still thinking on that one!  I might do something like "Summer Fun".  Don't know.

You could create a small tag booklet using flat embellies as well.  This would also be a great addition to a mini album.  You could also make a smaller version and use it as a gift card holder.  I hope you enjoyed this project and have fun with it!
Wishing all of you a wonderful Day!

Very cute! Wish we had a Walmart around here. But now that they are taking out all the craft stuff, won't be so much fun to shop there. Hope you are having a great day. :) Tammy
