Anyways before I get teary eyed, I wanted to show you all a QUICK gift décor idea. We gave her something special – a CD of pictures from the chess team (she is the faculty advisor and a chess nut herself). My youngest was on her team. But I couldn’t find a CD cover nor had the time (remember RUSH!) so I created a gift band to make it pretty….
After embossing the 2 ½ x 12” strip of cardstock, I scored the area where it would bend around to the back of the case. Then using ScraPerfect’s The Best Glue Ever, I adhered the ends. Since I am a messy type and kind of in a hurry (wink wink!), I had some sticky residue from the adhesive so I swiped the Perfect Crafting Pouch to take out the sticky. Then I placed a flower I already had in my stash from another project and added bling in the center.
Either for a teacher’s gift or any kind of gift with a CD, try this idea. It took me all of ten minutes…oh, and she loved it! Kept commenting on how lovely the band was! LOL!! PHEW~!
Like this idea?! There’s plenty more on this blog so bookmark us!
