The 8th Week of Christmas Tutorial on CD Ornament

This week is the 8th Week of Christmas!
Yesterday I posted several Cd ornaments and today I will show you how to make your own ornaments. They are so much fun to make and most of us have plenty of old Cd's around. Now get one out and let's get in the Holiday spirit!

Old CD

I traced around the CD on Frostwood designer series paper, then cut 22 1/2" x 3" strips from a different pattern of the same designer series paper. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on everything for this project except adhering the seam binding; for that I used Sticky Strip. I decided to cut out a circle of cardboard (not in the photo.) I found it is much easier to glue the cone pieces to the cardboard and then adhere the designer series paper to the CD.

I applied the liquid glue along the edge of the cardboard and placed the cones..then added more glue and more cones until the cardboard border was covered.

I cut a circle from Letters to Santa designer series paper using the Clear Circle Die. I added another bow using Cherry Clobber seam binding and an Antique Brad. This ornament is 6 3/4" circumference.
These are great for your own tree or give some away as gifts.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.

  2. What a cute idea!! Thank you for the tutorial, too. I think I need to get cutting up some scraps and dusting off those random old CD's and upcycling them.
