first of all, I don't know if I'm really supposed to be posting this at all.  I know there are new rules about mix CDs in regards to swaps, but I thought I'd try.  If it's not supposed to be here, I'll take it down.

that said, now that I'm home from school, I've been working furiously on christmas gifts.  first on my crafting gift list are a bunch of things for my one friend who is in Vegas.  I made this 'tea' CD first.
 

here's the actual CD, assembled.  (ah, it looks really terrible in this picture, but whatev.)

on the actual disc, it reads:  

Have Yourself a Cup of Tea: a blend of tea related songs by our favorite artists.  

& here are the inserts that I whipped up in Photoshop

here's the CD in its packaging.  I took two pieces of tissue paper and cut open a tea bag and sealed the actual tea between the two sheets of paper.  I folded it in half and glued the sides, then slipped the CD inside, folded the top like a tea bag and then stapled on string with a tag I made in photoshop.

here's a shot for scale (& because it's silly.)

hope you all like it.  comments & critique appreciated.

That's really cute. I'd be jazzed to receive that. Especially because of the songs on it! I've been on this huge Mirah kick lately so that made me happy. I also have an extraordinary infatuation for tea. Dang, I'm jealous!  Cheesy
