This is the project for May, and can be used for Mothers day (May 10th) but can also be used for any other special occasion.
To make this, take the insert out of a plastic CD case.
Measure and cut craftcard to fit the front and back of the case.
Take a scrap oval of shell, and use this as a template to mark an oval on the front card. Cut out oval from card, slightly smaller than the shell oval
Cut the oval scrap down to fit in the case when it is closed (there is a lot of measuring to fit in this project..remember to measure twice and cut once!) in egging we can adjust to fit as needed to as well.
Decorate the card and the oval scrap -I found this gorgeous earring, and it was just asking to be used in a project like this.
Now glue the decorated scrap of shell to the oval cutout of the card, from the back of the front card with the oval facing out.
add cord and braid around edges of oval. Cut out a suitable picture (I used gift wrap) and paste this to the outside of the back cover. I used stickers to decorate around the edges of the card, a suitable verse can be printed on light paper and pasted on the inside of the back cover. scrapbooking embellishments are very nice to use as well.
This CD case greeting card can be safely mailed anywhere in a CD mailer!
a nice way to use those oval scraps of shell, and to recycle those old CD cases.. cheers Dot
