Create a lovely box by tracing a CD onto your cardstock.
- One piece of 8 1/2" x11" Glossy Cardstock
- Scrap Paper big enough to trace a cd
- approx. 30" of Ribbon
- Bone Folder (optional)
- Black Marker
Trace cd onto scrap paper and cut out.
Fold circle in half one way, then the other, dividing the circle into four equal pieces.
Place template on CD and pull back slightly.
Make a mark with a black marker at all four points.
Remove the template, then use ruler to draw lines all the way across.
Stamp glossy cardstock as desired, covering the whole sheet, then flip over.
Trace the CD, then arrange the CD so that two of the lines are lined as shown and trace again.
You should have two circles that are intertwined at this point. If you lay this out correctly, you can get two boxes out of one sheet.
Move the cd around each circle, lining up the two lines and tracing again.
Cut out around just the outside circles.
Using a stylus, trace each of the inside lines.
The box should look like this at this point.
Starting with the inside area of the box, creasing at impressed lines. A bone folder can be used at this point.
Step 10 (Optional)
Set empty box aside and dye some ribbon.
Let this dry completely.
Fill box with a small treat or surprise and tie a ribbon around it to close.
