OWL CD CARD Tutorial

Front of OWL CD CARD


You will need 1 SHEET of double sided Cardstock....or one plain and one patterned.
Scissors,INK, Ribbon, glue dots or hot glue, glue stick, scalloped scissors or corner rounder, file and an old CD, and one tag or note.
Begin by gluing all over CD and placing on one side of cardstock and trimming around leaving a slight lip on paper (to be filed later for more perfect edge)

Now flip it over and do the same thing making sure one side is patterned and one side is not.

Trim each side when you are done...better to glue, then trim and glue then trim.
Trimming both at the same time never works as well.

Now file off edges to make perfectly round and INK for affect and to cover any imperfections, also it makes it pop out more.

Cut a wide triangle about 4" at widest point. 3" to 4 " is fine, its flexible.

Cut orpunch out 2 approx. 1 1/2 inch circles

Now ink the eyes circles and triangle head piece...and cut 3 strips approx. 5" long and 3/4" wide.
Scallop one side and leave the other straight.

Now I just glue stick the first strip but for added dimension I use glue dots or glue gun for the other 2 so they layer and pop out...I do make sure to ink them as well for added depth.

I trim and ink each one as I glue it on.

Now glue the eye circles on after testing out and eyeing the shape and placement you want.
And HOT glue OR glue DOT the triangle on for added depth again.

Now the front of card is finished, turn the CD over and begin the back.

Carefully glue around the outside edge of CD for the pocket

Place Cardstock on and trim, don't forget to sand and INK to match the rest.

Glue on ribbon and bow or embellishment. Add Note or TAG...
See ABOVE for finished product!
