Going Green ~ CD Ornament



Supplies

CD
Sheet of music
Elmer’s glue
silver glitter
Skate Stamp
Bird stamp
To/From stamp
black ink
Off white paper
crop-a-dile
red ribbon
3” circle punch
or glass the correct size to draw
a circle to stamp on for front
of ornament and for the tag.



Lay the CD on the Sheet music and draw around it, do this again for a second circle. These will be the front and back of the ornament. Lay the CD on the sheet music so only half of it is overlapping on the outside edge, this will make the pocket for the to/from tag. Cut out the circles, one just inside the pencil line and the other a little further in. You want the back circle to line up with the edge of the cd and the front circle to be a bit smaller. Use double stick tape to adhere the circles to the CD making sure that the sheet music is going in the same direction on both sides. Run a thin line of Elmer’s glue on one side of the half circle of music (do not put glue on the straight edge) and adhere to one side making sure that the straight edge runs in the same direction of the music. Stamp skates on off white paper and punch out with 3” circle punch or use glass to draw around image and cut out. Stamp bird stamp and to/from stamp on off white paper and punch out. You can color in the images with colored pencils if you would like. Put tag in pocket. Use the crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top of the ornament. Use double stick tape to attach skate image to the front of CD ornament making sure that the top is lined up with the punched hole.  Outline the image and the edge of the ornament with Elmer’s glue and sprinkle with silver glitter. Allow glue to dry before adding ribbon.
