Happy Birthday CD Craft

This great idea enables you to use up some empty CD cases and make lovely gifts for friends with upcoming birthdays. The soft pastel look is perfect for spring and summer birthdays and the butterflies add so much enhancement to the background paper.



Blue CD Card with Butterflies

For this project you will need:

- empty CD case (the kind with the insert that can be removed)
- scrapbook paper pack “Aquamarine - Floral Prints” by British designer Kate Knight (Dovercraft)
- Sizzix Sidekick with “Butterfly #2” diecutter
- light blue textured cardstock
- light blue scrapbook paper matching paper above
- double sided adhesive tape
- glitter, beads, buttons for the inside
- 3-D foam tape
- balloon and sunshine paper punches
- peel-off sticker
- light blue permanent pen to color the sticker
- 2 light blue miniature brads
- small hole puncher


1. Follow the tutorial in the link above to make this project.
2. Because the glue mentioned on her website was not available here, we substituted double sided foil to hold the paper onto the CD and clear tape to hold the box closed.
