Bind It All CD Book

 Hello everyone! 
I have been having internet issues and have had tons of trouble keeping my connection, so my commenting, posting and everything has been put on hold for a bit here!!!

Today I wanted to show you a little gift I made for a friend for her birthday.  This is a CD book.  I know she has a very high end camera and takes great photos, so I thought a pretty place to keep her photos might be fun.

I  covered some chip board with  EK Success DP on the outside and inside covers.  I bound it with 3/4" O Wires, and used my Zutter Bind It All.  I made a little tag using a sentiment from Our Daily Bread designs Friendship set.    I added some ZVA Creative pearls and some Prima flowers, ribbon from my stash and the Zutter Heart Closure.

On the inside I added a little pocket with a paper I lined so she can list what is on each CD.  The CD pockets themselves came from a local fun store that sells a little of everything.

I am entering this in:

Grace what a pretty holder. I like the inside pocket too, such great detail. Hope you enjoy your 'down' time until the internet cooperates and rest your eyes from all the electronic gear the can be overwhelming. :)

Hi Grace!

What a beautiful gift! Those flowers and pearls on that aswesome paper are just delicious--
It even looks as if the flowers and pearls could be flowers on a cake, and the paper colors are so great together...that could be the frosting! LOL

I love your ribbons on the loop part. Oh, and a tiny heart on the clasp! You think things out so beautifully Grace, and then you have the talent to make your vision a reality!

You are a blessing to me...and anyone that looks at your work, of that I a sure.

Oh Grace,

I forgot to suggest that you may want to put a "book plate" on the back. (I think that is what they are called.) They use them if you buy a book in someone's honor...
