One more Baby Shower Item...

I took about 150 pictures at the shower. I wanted to share them with Rhonda (mother to be), Kristi & Laura (other two hostesses). I downloaded all of the pictures to a CD, made copies for each of them and made a holder/sleeve. I had some of the paper from the invitations and a few more little airplanes already stamped and embossed so the project came together quickly. Here's what I came up with.

To make this you can start with a 8.5x11 sheet of card stock. (I used 12x12). Cut it down to 5 1/8 x 11. Score at 2.5 and 7.5 inches. Take the left over strip and cut it down to 7 1/8. Score at 1" on both ends and fold. Folded flaps are what adheres to the middle panel between the horizonal score lines and holds the CD in place. I used a coordinating striped piece instead of the same paper to add a little contrast. I printed the wording on the computer (same font & colors as invite & other stuff). Lastly, I added a second strip of paper to the flap (for decoration), adhered the airplane mounted on the scallop circle and finished it off with a piece of light pink stitched grosgrain ribbon tied in a simple knot.
