Recycled CD Album
I made this for my Showcase #7 submission on Audrey's blog, Cute and Some.
And this is what I did...
I took two old CD's and lightly sanded them to make the paper adhere better.
I applied the glue stick to each side, placed paper and trimmed the edges. I covered both the front and back.
I went to my trusty Cricut and had it cut out 8 circles, a little smaller than CD's, at 4 1/2". Since this wasn't double sided paper, I cut 8, adhered them back to back to make 4 pages. This is the leftover papers from my purse project, from October Afternoon. I inked all the edges of the covers ad the pages.
I punched holes with my Crop-a-Dile, set eyelets, and used a book ring to bind. Then I tied ribbon to the ring to decorate. The flowers on the front are from K&Company. The images are from Heartwarming Vintage, buttons are Making Memories.
Closeup. The lady is saying "Always with a smile." Yep, that's me in the kitchen! HA!
I think I am going to put some kitchen notes in it and hang it on my fridge. Thanks for looking!
