Oh boy, I needed 12 gifts for a stamping group that I’m a member of. We meet once a month and this particular group of women have been together for the last 9 years, so we know each other very well. I normally collect things all year round but this year was anything but normal, right? So this is what I gave each of them . . . a CD calendar. Talk about bang for your buck. For the last year I’ve been collecting digital paper. I have a couple of my favorite artists who in addition to publishing paper for big brand names also release digital paper. So when Zoe Pearns calendar comes out each year, I snag it HERE. I’ll say it came in handy this year.
I simply printed each page from Photoshop, cut and placed in a CD Case. I also typed up a set of instructions to the recipient that tells them to decorate as they wish. They can either cut where the pictures go or they can mount matted pictures where the openings are indicated. Then they have to reverse the lid of the CD case so that it will stand.
By the way, these CD cases are going the way of the dinosaurs – hard to find – they are not in my Walmart any more. Usually you can bank on getting them at Big Lots but I haven’t had any luck lately. If you leave a comment and have good source for these, let us know.
P.S. Thanks for the response to my ornament yesterday. I will work on getting a tutorial done but I won’t insert my foot in my mouth and say when, but I will when I can.
