Club Scrap Scandinavia Blog Hop

Welcom to the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop.
This month the kit is called  Scandinavia
and you find all the products HERE.

Hope you have arrived here from
and seen her wonderful artwork.
If you lose your way you can see
all the participants on the 

And now for my project:
While doing some clearing up in my craft room,
I came across a few CD-covers (remember those?)
and I suddenly knew what I was going to make.
A CD-booklet! I did it before long time ago, but
this is such a great gift idea, that I made it again.
Here is my CD booklet. I tied a ribbon around it
 to keep the box closed.

Here is what you need to make one of your own:
1. CD cover
2. various colors of cardstock
3. double sided tape or glue
4. paper ctter
4. ribbon
6. circle punch

Cut paper as follows:
2x 4"x 12" solid cardstock
1x 5 1/5"x 4 3/4" (inside box cover)
1x 5"x 4 3/4"(outside box cover) 
2x 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
4x  (ore more if you want) 3 3/4"x 3 3/4

Take the two long strips and score at 4" and 8" both strips.
Fold them harmonica wise. Glue first and last together. 

You can also make a pocket out of the first and the last. 
Then use circle punch as shown here and only glue
sides and bottom together with a small tape.

Place iner and outside paper in the box and adhere
the 4 1/2 " square papers.

Adhere the harmonica folded strips to the inner side of
the box. Make sure strip folds as a booklet. On the top page
you glue a ribbon behind a pice of square paper,
so it is easy to open the booklet.

Decorate your booklet with pictures and text.
Here my finished pages.
I made a booklet of  Opa & Oma day.
I make so many pictures those days
that i can fill many more booklets!

On the first left page I made a little pocket to
and added a tag inside. On the right you see the booklet
totally folded.

Here the booklet is folded open.

You see the pocket where the two parts of the
strips are joined together.

A tag inside the pocket.
For my booklet I played with the wonderful papers
and used the washi tape that came with the kit.

Some of the images I cut out to add to the pictures.
Don't do this to much for then it all ges too bulky and the 
booklet won't close :-)

When the weather is nice we go to the playground,
or to the children's farm.  The days fly by!

I also have two cards for you:
There are so many wonderful images and stamps in this kit
that match wonderful with the design paper.
All the luittle rabbits are embossed in different colors.
And how about a crard for Christmas?
The sentiment is from an older rubber stampset Homemade (2014).
The papers and the doily are so great to use here and the branch is cut out
with a Tim Holtz thinit. The owls are embossed in silver.

Now don't forget to take a look at the Scandinavia Holiday bundle
that just came out!

Now on to the next blog for more ideas.
Go to Jennifer's Blog and see what she has
come up with for your inspiration.

Thanks for looking 
and have a creative day!

Oh WOW! Your CD album is genius! I've never seen one like this before with the folding pages and pull out tabs. I'm saving this for a closer look later, I'm intrigued! The pictures of your grandboys are so cute, I bet they loved looking through this. Your bonus cards are so original! Love the different colored bunnies and the Merry Christmas owls. You are always inspiring Hetty! Have a fabulous day!

What a fun CD album!! And a great way to use up those old CD Cases too! Hugs! ~Melitta

Kelly said...

And don't you know I just threw out about 40 CD cases! This is such a fun way to scrap and could easily become a series. I could definitely see doing this every Christmas and the albums would be easy to go through when everyone is gathered. Great job!
