Supplies Needed for the SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project

Decorative Card Stock

CD or DVD envelope

Velcro

Adhesive

6″ Square Envelope

Scissors

This is the SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project.

Your SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project has a velcro tab so that you can open it with ease.

Once opened, you will see the CD or DVD envelope holder. On the right side it allows for a lovely personal message to your loved one that is receiving your gift!

Close your Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project. Let’s get started on the SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project!

Take out your trimmer.

Take out your 12 x 12 piece of decorative paper for your SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder.

This is my Stampin Up paper trimmer. It comes with both the scoring blade and cutting blade. The scoring blade is light gray and the cutting blade is dark gray.

My friend Brandie and previous Creative Crew Member is a rep for Stampin Up! If you like this trimmer (I LOVE IT!) and want to see how to purchase this, check out my friend Brandie’s Website HERE.

Taking your 12 x 12 paper, you will want to cut 5.75″ off of the paper. You can create two of the SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project with just one piece of paper!

You now want to trim your paper to 11.5″. Be sure to keep the extra piece you trim off. You will use it for the SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project.

This is what it will look like once it has been trimmed and the extra piece you will need for this project.

Take your 5.75″ x 11.5″ paper and fold it in half as shown.

Take out the extra piece you saved from trimming the paper. Cut a piece approximately 1.5″ – 2″ and set it aside.

Take out your CD or DVD envelope. You will not need the flap of your envelope for this project.You will want to cut off the flap of your envelope.

If you want, you can leave it like this or cut the little edge off so it is the same on both sides. I liked it better with the latter.

Using your adhesive, apply it to the back of the CD or DVD envelope. Make sure you get all four corners of the envelope but do not apply adhesive too close to the opening of it.

Apply your envelope to the inside of your card as shown.

Here is where you will place your DVD or CD gift for your SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project.

Take out your folded decorative paper and your small piece of paper you trimmed.

Apply adhesive to one side of the small piece of paper. Be sure it is not the decorative side.

Place the paper on the back of the card. Be sure you check where the envelope is and that it won’t be upside down.

Fold the paper in allowing space for the CD or DVD when closed on your SAVE MONEY Create Your Own Holiday Gift Photo DVD Holder Project.

Be sure you leave space for the  velcro.

Take out your velcro and be sure it is lined up before you place it down.

Peel off the adhesive and place it on the paper.

This is a close up of what it will look like before adhering it to  your card front.

Press down firmly on the velcro ensuring it’s adhesion.

This is what it looks like open once you have completed the creation.

This is where you would put your photo CD or DVD.

Here you can see where there is a little bit of bulk so making sure you have left enough space will keep the project from ripping.

If you chose to mail this, be sure you account for extra postage when sending the 6 x 6″ envelope. You may also want to add a little bit of padding inside the envelope to avoid breaking the disc.
