I marked where I wanted to cut the CD with a Sharpie marker. After heating the CD with my heat gun, I was able to cut it with my scissors.
I used my American Greetings CreataCard computer program (there is a project on there to make your own CD label) to make the inside. It helped A LOT to get everything to line up on the CD. (I ended up printing it out and re-adjusting things to get it to be spaced out evenly) Cynthia Bisson from TAC was generous enough to share her list of eyelet ideas with me. There were over 90 different ones. I chose some of my favorites to put in the CD book. I cut the list out using my Fiskers Circle Cutter. I also used my circle cutter for the cover, and then stamped it and added the eyelets to it. The lady bug on the cover is made with The Stamp Doctors eyelet positioning stamp. The back cover has the flowers stamped all over it. The pocket & flower are from Pocket Fun set. The alphabet set is from PSX.
I used mono-adhesive to attach the cover and the inside papers to the CD. I melted gold UTEE in my melting pot, and dipped the edges. I carefully glued the hinges to the CD & the inside paper with E6000 glue. I bought the hinges at Wal-mart & a hardware store (they are 3/4" X 5/8")for less than $2 for 4 hinges. Hope this makes sense ;)
