Altered CD Folders

For about 4 years I have made cd folders for gifts. (sorry gang, no beaded ones this year)
We have many in our family that make cd's for gifts. Music, photos of family events through out the year, and other themes~ so a great gift is a personalized cd folder.
This is for a special someone. This folder was brayered, has a chipboard mat for a photo on the cover, and some prisma. I did put liquid glass over the prisma because I didn't want it loose on the cd. Added a bit of silver trim and a few flowers.

The inside has an embossed mat and some tags for photos or journaling of the cd contents or events. And has a stamped saying. You can also attach tags or additonal pages to the center.
The one above is for a fun loving cousin and we have a running joke. Gotta have those people in the family! We dig at each other and tease so I really wanted something funny for his.
Inside reads "Guilt~ the gift that keeps on giving" . We visited in the spring and I will enclose a cd of the photos taken with them on our visit.

The one below is for a teen birthday and her party. Not finished yet but you should get the idea.

Has a mini album on the cover and opens up for journaling , autographs, or special photos.
As you can see the sky is the limit as to what you can use these for and do to them! Add 3 or more together for a book, make it a recipe holder, kids school event and add what you like, have fun with it!
All papers, inks and ribbons were Close to My Heart.
