Tonight's Project #2 - Baby Boy Brag Book

As I said in my previous post, stranger things have been given new life in a craft project.  Besides, being "Green" is all the rage right now.  These little "books" were salvaged from the garbage destined for the landfill and they look so cute now.


Originally, these were little soft plastic CD "books", I can only assume came with some pretty large computer programs. These little ones are only designed to hold 2 CD's, but some of the other ones I have will hold 7 or 8.


This particular one used up some cute, little boy paper scraps (I'm on a scrap clear out binge right now) and I think it turned out pretty cute!!!

Tonight's Project #1 - Feminine Brag Book

Some people might think this strange but others, who know me, won't think it strange at all.

I found these little "books" in the garbage and salvaged them with the hope of finding just the right project to give them a new life.  I think this fits the bill.


Originally, these were little plastic CD holders, I can only assume came with some pretty large computer programs.  These little ones are only designed to hold 2 CD's, but some of the other ones I have will hold 7 or 8.

This particular one used up some cute, and feminine paper scraps (I'm on a scrap clear out binge right now).  I think it turned out pretty cute!!!

Today's Tip! - Frosting

Frosting adds a unique touch to all of your metal charms. This creates a softened look suitable for baby and grandparent scrapbooks.



To create this frosted charm look, sprinkle embossing powder and glitter on the metal charms and heat. Repeat this process again, before the item has a chance to cool. Attach the charms to your scrapbook once they cool completely.
