We’ve been listening to Christmas music non-stop since Monday – it’s such an important part of setting the tone each holiday season. That’s why we love Wendy Sue Anderson’s great Christmas CD holiday gift idea!
The most peaceful thing I can imagine during the holiday season is sitting by a crackling fire, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and listening to my favorite Christmas songs. This year I am giving the gift of “my perfect evening” to my neighbors!
After creating a collection of our family’s favorite Christmas songs, I burned several copies for our neighbors and friends. I wanted to embellish the actual CD so I used my Xyron 510 to add a good strong adhesive to adhere the circle of patterned paper directly to the front of the CD.
I added some stickers for the title, year, and a bit of embellishing as well.
I cut the CD folder using my Silhouette Cameo and embellished it with patterned papers, chipboard, and stickers.
I used a white paint pen to write on the black chalkboard tag to personalize each CD.
The Xyron “create a sticker” tool is perfect for adding adhesive to small chipboard stickers like the tree I used to embellish the cover.
I hope you this project inspires you to share a bit of yourself with your friends and neighbors this holiday season!
