Easy Holiday CD Holders

We made these fun CD holders down at Memories of Time for Michelle's VIP night.  Super fun, and super easy.  Perfect to share some holiday tunes or a CD of photos for family and friends.

My favorite way to close the flap is to use Snap Magnets.... they are small and not bulky, you can hide them under the cardstock so when the flap "snaps" shut... it seems like magic.  I did not plan far enough ahead, so we had to use Velcro tabs for these.  I will share a couple more I did tomorrow.
These are SO easy to make. My friend Ang Fab shared this with me at a stamping retreat years ago.  Start with an 8.5 by 11 piece of cardstock or two sided designer paper. Cut long ways at 5 1/8 (so you have a piece that is 11 x 5 1/8) Score this piece at 2.5 and 7.5.  Cut the left over strip down to 7 1/8.  Score each end in 1 inch.  This piece goes in the inside to hold the CD in place.  Adhere it to the front pocket applying glue to the 1 inch strips you scored.  Add Zip Dry to the back and close it shut.  I will try and get a tutorial written up after the holidays, but if you have any questions, just shoot me an email.  

We used Snowflake Nestie dies to make the snowflakes and added little Kaiser Pearls for the centers. We stamped Merry Christmas on the CD with Red Stazon Ink using the stamp set Merry Wishes.  The designer paper is from Imaginisce called Polar Expressions Sugar Sprinkles... it has all kinds of glitter on those dots! We used the stamp set Snow Place Like Home.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
