Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

CD Mini-Book

One of the Challenges on 12 Months in View last month was to alter an old CD. My biggest challenge here was to find some old CDs but fortunately my husband found a couple of old ones from work. Also one lady mentioned that they work well as the covers to a mini-book so I thought I'd give that a go.











My Big Bite made holes in the CDs without much trouble. I made some card and acetate pages and used book rings to bind.

I had a Kaisercraft patterned paper pad I had bought on a whim some time ago and decided to use that for the pages, which I have duly covered.






I have just decorated the front cover and will ponder the rest as and when the mood takes me. I have done a small collection of embellishments from other kits which colour match too, so ready to go...

While tidying my bedroom window ledge (I tend to hoard things behind the curtains!)I came across a box of cds, have no idea whats on them but this has given me an idea of how to use them when I'm done checking them! ;)
