This is a CD case.  NO, REALLY?  Sorry…I am full of sarcasm today!  It is VERY early in the morning!  It is a white square CD case.  Here is the recipe:

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink “Holiday Treats” and “Spooky Treats”, Rhonna Ferrar swirls.

Ink: Black Stazon, White Craft.

Accesories: Coaster, Modge Podge, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Page Pebbles, Brads, A burned CD of your favorite Christmas Music to give to your friend!

I stamped the snowflake around the case in stayzon, then took the coaster which I found in Germany (that is why it is that shape, but it works well with square or rounded too!  Don’t panic!)  Covered it in Basic Black and made up the tag using craft ink and used the ticket corner punch and some black brads to finish it off.  I then took this ribbon:

frayed it and wrapped a little red line tape at each end which then allowed me to twist it into a rope and stick it down right there without doing anything fancy!  OOOH AAAH!

Then I actually used the little circle stamps in the “Spooky Treats” set to stamp the craft ink outlines of the page pebbles with the snowflakes!  It fit perfectly.

ON THE INSIDE:  I used Rhonna Ferrar stamps for the swirly’s and accented them with the snowflakes, see?  I made a template out of white cardstock that IS NOT attached to the CD underneath!  It isn’t attached, because on the other side of that template, you can write out the play list!!  Make sure you don’t use a really dark pen that will show through to the other side!
