Edit: the giveaway has now been closed & winner picked. Comments still open though, in case of question and stuff :)
Welcome to the first installation of the 5th bloganniversary-tutorials :)
We’ll start off quite simple, with this CD cover made out of corrugated cardstock & decorated with Hambly-goodies. When taking pictures for and/or sharing pictures with friends I try my best, time allowing, to make the “package” more cozy for the recipient. In this case, I shot some babyphotos for a friend of mine, and wanted to send her something cute she could keep the CD in.
First – grab a sheet of corrugated cardstock. You can purchase sheets or rolls of these in pretty much all hobby/craft stores and most well associated bookstores as well. I love the white ones – they look so pretty and is quite easy to decorate with say paint or a dash or two of glimmer mist! :) But I digress…
Decorate the cover before you enclose the sides. Trust me, it’ll make the decorating much, much more simple. Here I used the Hambly transparency “Old Lace” in gold and some various Kraft-stickers mounted on 3d-foam. When done with the cover – enclose the edge either using a thin strip of strong double-sided tape or use your sewing machine.
Voila – quite simple and it actually takes 20-30 minutes top to make a little more thoughtful gift.
Here’s Hamblys supercute “Onesies” transparency in teal used as the background, decorated with a few Kraft stickers, a tutrle-rubon from “Classic Animals” mounted on blank transparency and a cute butterfly-cutout from “Wings”. The letters are one of my fave letters from AdornIt.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
Here’s a peek of some of the yummy Hambly-stuff that you can win in the giveaway. Clear stickers, rubons (Gold “Doilies”! One of my total faves atm!), the awesome “Hambly Couture” – both a sheet of paper plus
I spot some of the new stuff too – Embroidery & Doily Decor papers :)
