Recycled CD for Bah Humbug

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is to use a CD, I always have loads of old cds laying around as my son is DJ and he gets through loads and loads of them. I decided to make a little hanging decoration with a cd.

The CD is covered with a bp from one of Joanna Sheens cds (I think, it was from a file of printed bps that I'm trying to use up so I'm not 100% sure which cd is was from). I sandwiched a doiley between the cd and the layer of bp on the back of the cd. I also wrapped a wide red satin ribbon around the cd and popped in a hanging loop before I covered the back of the cd (you don't want to know how many times I've forgotten to do this until after I've put the bp on lol)

I've added a Marianne die cut stamped with a Paula Pascuale greeting in red dye ink and cute little Tilda coloured with promarkers and glittered her wings and fur trim with some creamy glitter. To finish off I've added a big red bow and some red and gold stickles.

I'm entering this little project in the following challenges
Bah Humbug: Use a CD/DVD
CD Sunday: Get ahead, get a hat
Incy Wincy: Punches/die cuts
Top Tip Tuesday: Bling it on
Winter Wonderland: Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas
One Stitch at a time: anything but a square
The cheerful stamp pad: Anything but a card
Fresh Brewed Designs: Ribbons and bows

After all the hassle of decorating I've had a lovely crafty day and now hubby is cooking sausage and mash for tea! YUM SCRUM! I love sausage and mash :-)
I've been having an inky play making some backgrounds so after I've tucked in to my bangers I'll see how they've dried and maybe make a card or two.

  16. Hi Claire,
    After seeing what you and everyone else has produced for our CD challenge, I confess to a wee touch of envy that you have a limitless supply of old CDs. NEVER AGAIN will I throw them away as they are far too useful. I really like the idea of including the doily for a lacy edging and the tip about remembering to sandwich the ribbon loop BEFORE attaching the backing paper is a goody. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
