SARAH KAY CREATIVE CD CASE




Wow, this was a great Challenge! This Challenge is from Sarah Kay Challenge - Week 12 "Creative CD Cases". I have taken this opportunity to do something I have been meaning to do for a long time..... I always look at my "Storage" for my Nestabilities, and keep thinking to myself, that one day I may lose a few, and my idea was to store them in CD cases! Well when this Challenge came up, it was a "kick-start" for me to put my plan into action. So one down, few more to go...
I started off by stamping and colouring in my Sarah Kay image "Picnic of Daisies", and cut her, and the layer with my oval "Nesties". All the backing papers have been printed from Pink Petticoat Paper Collections. The very bottom backing paper was a FREEBIE download from Pink Petticoat, and the rest were from my favourite CD "His 'n Hers". The inside left side of the cover, I simply layered up in the different sizes of the "Nesties" various papers. On the "CD" side, I have cut out a piece of card out in the shape of a CD, and stuck "Double-sided" tape across it, then removed the tape, and "stuck" the "Nesties" on it. The double-sided tape will keep the nesties from moving around, and is not so sticky that it will leave a residue on your nesty. The back cover was just one piece of backing paper from my FREEBIE download from Pink Petticoat. My final step was to type a "tab" to describe which nesty is in the box, which I have stuck on the side of the CD, and also inside the CD, this will enable me to know exactly which set of nesties I have in which CD case.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog,and please fell free to come back and visit anytime. Happy Crafting X

Brilliant Idea Louise, I've tried several storage methods none of which are 100% efficient - I think I might give this a try if you don't mind me pinching your idea. I might even stick them onto old CD's.
I love what you've don e with the cover.
Thanks for your visit & lovely comment.
