CD/DVD Holder with Dawn Visit my web site for more hand stamped projects DawnsStampingThoughts
Today I want to show you how to make this CD holder. This will hold your CD inside, cute! All right, let me show you what you are going to need. I am using Cameo Coral with chocolate chip. Cameo Corals is my base and you going to need to have a piece cut it 5 ½”x 10” and then I have the little layers here, the whisper white is cut at 5” x 1 ¾” and then that is going to be layered on top of the chocolate chip. And that is cut at 5” x 2” and this whisper white is cut 3” x 2 1/8” and then the chocolate chip is cut at 3 ¼” x 2 3/8” and that is the layer on top of that. I am going to show you how you do this. And you are going to need some taffeta ribbon, I am using chocolate. So first, you are going to cut your cut your card stock at 5 ½” x 10” and you are going to score that 5” which is right in ½ and then on the sides, you are going to score in ¼. And then once you do that, we are going to cut one side of the ¼” side up to the 5” score line.
Okay, and then I always like to make an angle cut here on the other side just that it folds in better. Once you get that done, we are going to fold all our score lines then open that back up and then you are going to fold that up. Then you are going to punch ½ of the circle here at top and the center with the 1 3/8” circle punch. It might be kind of tough because you are punching two pieces of card stocks so there you go. So then there is my center cut out. You are going to line your ¼” score lines here with sticky strip. Okay we are going to do that real quick. The sticky strip should fit under it perfectly if you got the ¼” size. Go ahead and peel that off. I am also going to be using three front stamp set and the rough textured wheel so then you are just going to fold in these sides and you are going to line it up with the front and then press down like that. I am going to use the Cameo Coral ink with my rough texture jumbo wheel and I am just going to wheel this out a couple of times. I always like starting the wheel closest to my chest because I can see where I have lined it up and start off your paper.
So then we are going to do our leering of our – I went ahead and stamped on the whisper white with this stamp from the two front stamp set and Cameo Corals so I am going to go ahead and layer those two together on the chocolate chip and then on to the Cameo Coral holder here. And then I want to take my taffeta ribbon and I will wrap that around at the back and over to the left hand side and just tie a knot. I want to take my other whisper white and layer that on to the chocolate chip and then add a couple of dimensionals. One of the top, and one on the bottom, peel them off and then I am just going to position that over to the right hand side of the center a little bit. And then let me get the CD here and then that just slides in there perfectly. So now I am just going to show you how I did this. Let me just get pieces of scrap white here.
Okay, so now, this technique is called Thumping technique and what you are going to do is I am using the flower from the True Friend Stamp Set. I want to ink that up with the Cameo Coral, then I am going to take my chocolate chip marker, and then I am going to use the bigger tip end. I am just going to thump this on to that stamp after I have stamped it with the Cameo Coral. You can do a lot if your want, it is kind of fun and then you are going to half on it and then you are going to stamp it. And that is how you do that. Is it not that cute?
All right stampers, we will see you later. Thank you, bye!
