Well I finally decided to combine my CD with and accordion folder. I have been wanting to try making one of these and this seemed like a great time. So here is my Accordion CD image holder!
I started out by coloring my Sarah Kay image with my Copics and Sakura Glaze Pens. I cut her out with a border around the edge.
Now I didn't want to add much bulk inside so I made the accordion folds for the sides and attached them to a card stock back and pattern paper front. (this is a Heidi Grace Shimmer paper) I cut this down a million times to get it to fit perfectly into the CD... I was so nervous I would cut it too much and I had way too much time on the folds to ruin it. Once it fit just right, I added the ribbon, the image, the flower/leaf to the front and then on the inside I attached two pieces of the pattern paper to cover the attachment of the folded sides.
I wanted this to stay "slick" on the front. Nothing that would come off. That way you could carry it in a purse or mail with no worries. But I did have one slight problem... that nasty open area down the side. I really need to order some that don't have that, but this was all I had. So I attached a ribbon down that side just to cover the hole. I think it is a "neat" way to ship RAK images what do you think?
Run on over and see what all the other DT's came up with this challenge.... wow really creative! Then give it a try yourself!
A heads up... I am thinking I am over due for some blog candy. I think I actually promised at 10,000 to do it again at 20,000 - oops missed that. So I am currently putting together some goodies and should post it in a day or so. Keep an eye out!
Sunday - so better get my act together to meet the gang at the local cafe for breakfast. This is a tradition we have had for years - Sunday morning breakfast with friends. I had someone ask me about the cafe we go to each week. It really is an old fashion small town cafe. Gas pumps outside, red and white plastic table cloths on the tables. Large griddle cook top right out where you can watch the sweet ladies make your meal. Breakfast is plain and simple but always tasty. Their other menu items range from hamburgers to chicken fried steaks, meat loaf to fried chicken. A few Mexican foods (it is Texas you know!) and on Wednesday and Fridays all you can eat catfish! Gotta love it! Plus it is the best place to catch up on all the local "news" - not gossip these old farmers would never do that! Well better run or I might miss something shocking! ;0)
Hope you have a crafty day planned and HUGS!
