Altered CD Holder - Heartfelt Creations

Dec 23, 2015

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you. I am sharing a project with you today for Heartfelt Creations.  with only a couple days away from Christmas i wanted to share a altered CD Holder that i created using one of the flip fold Pockets and the new coffee talk collection.

What i absolutely love about these flip fold pockets is how versatile they are.  I most always make my own music CD's when i know im going to do a long road trip ( so i cannot sync my phone to my vehicle, i do not have that capability just yet) and i have a friend who often travels with me and enjoys my taste in music and has asked me on a few occasions to make her a CD.  SO that gave me an idea for a CD holder.

I started with the flip fold from this packet


adhered it together, covered front and back, did the same to the CD Case and I came up with this

I thought it was such a unique idea especially for those of us who still use the old fashioned way of listening to music (ha)
Happy Scrapping!
