CD Mailer Mini Album

It's been a much smoother day today!

The kids and I went to church this morning and I sat in the audience, which I haven't done in quite awhile.

I'm usually back in the sound booth, I get to run the sound system for our worship team on Sunday mornings and our band on Friday nights and also run the Power Point for the projector screen. There's one other guy that helps out and I have to remember not to be a hog and let him have a chance too.

I've been doing some stamping today but what I have to share with you in pictures isn't what I've been working on today.

I was looking through my pictures and noticed this mini album I made several months ago for a friend of mine.

I was going to give a class using a Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kit and discovered that I didn't have any old black and white pictures so I used his.

The kit I used is called Out & About, the paper I used in it is Not Quite Navy, Sage Shadow, Really Rust and the designer paper that comes with the kit. I used the stickers that come with the kit for embellishments. The monogram on the front of the mini album is made with Sizzix Fun Serif alphabet die cuts.

I bought the CD mailers from U Line, they hold 1 CD. I used 12 x 12 paper and cut it into
5 1/2" lengths and taped them together, then measured the inside width of the mailer and used my ScorIt to score every 4 3/4" so I could accordian fold the paper and fit it into the mailer. Then came the fun part, decorating and adding the pictures. After that part was done I used my double sided tape and taped it into the CD mailer, I also put a piece of the Not Quite Navy card stock on the inside of the front cover for a more finished look.

I used some of the designer paper that came in the kit to cover the outside of the CD mailer and a couple of the stickers to go with the monogram and it was done. It took me an afternoon to design that fun little project for us to do and I've made several since then.

I love "containers", boxes, tins, jars, etc. My friends have started to bring me odd stuff because they know I like to make other things out of them. I just like to make things!
