DIY: Embossed Paper CD Case
I used to be a pretty avid scrapbooker and stamper, so I dug into my stash for this project. I used some really pretty burgundy paper with a gold sheen to it, and a big stamp that I’ve had forever that I haven’t gotten a chance to really use yet.
I used a brown and a gold embossing powder. I’m a big fan of embossing- it’s easy to do and adds a lot of dimension to a stamped project.
The above photos is probably the best representation of the paper color. And look, you can see how much I paid for the stamp! Ha. Isn’t it a pretty stamp? I was excited to find it in my stamp stash- I’d forgotten all about it!
I used a clear-ish ink to stamp the design, since I was using a colored embossing powder. I stamped it approximately in the middle of my sheet of paper.
I then sprinkled some of the brown and gold embossing powder over the wet ink
I shook off the excess and then applied some heat using my embossing gun to melt the powder
Tada!! Pretty! Then I had to fold the case. First, I placed the cd at the bottom of the paper, in the approximate middle:
I folded the sides of the paper over the CD. Then I folded the bottom (while holding onto the cd) up, folded the top corners in, and then folded the top down and tucked it into the pocket that the cd was sitting in.
That’s it!! Super easy and cute!
I enjoyed making these - I am definitely going to be making more in the future!
