They're great! What songs did you put on the cd?

I'm still working on the playlist, but so far I have Christmas songs by Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong and Brenda Lee. I wanted it to be classic jazzy stuff. .with a few more upbeat/fun ones thrown in here and there.

23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mixed CD Christmas Party Favors (complete w/ photos) on: December 01, 2006 11:20:35 AM
I'm having a Christmas Party . . I made these cute!cute!cute! CD covers to hold a Christmas CD as a party favor. . . I found a template for the CD cover from Mirkwood Designs and tweaked it a bit, to make it more like an envelope. I made the cases from craft paper from the dollar store and embellished them with pretty Christmas ribbon. The stamp I used for the year is a vintage price stamp from a yard sale. The stained design was my first attempt, but I don't *love* the way it looks, it's a little too fussy for what I was trying to do. I absolutely LOVE the way they're turning out. . .but I can't decide which design is better.

The hardest part of the project was keeping the paper from rolling back into the shape of the craft paper roll. . so I put a stack of them in a 200 degree oven for about 10 minutes, flattened between parchment paper and 2 cookie sheets with a pizza stone to weigh them down, then cooled, still between the 2 sheets. . .they came out perfectly flat. To finish, I folded, glued, stamped, hole punched and ribboned them. . .very fast, easy, and cheap (my favorite part). . .not to mention, adorable! To stain the edges of the 'envelopes' I rubbed the base of a stamp pad lightly over the edges, first with red and then a very light swipe of black, for shadow. I can't take credit for that technique though, I saw it on the Carol Duvall show (DIY network). . . Wink

I have another package (my kids snarfed the last one Roll Eyes)  I just tested one, it tastes like an orange gummy lifesaver covered with a tootsie roll. . .very different.  Tongue Not necessarily reccomended. . .he! there's also Gumi Choco Apple, Strawberry and Grape. . the orange was the best. .the rest are. . um. well. different.... to be polite.  Wink

My husband bought me this adorable candy from our local Asian market. . .when I first saw it, I immediately made plans to turn this guy into Amigurumi. Using scrap yarn, a few bits of felt and simple embroidery I had my very own GUMI CHOCO ORANGE!!  He measures about 3 inches around, and is my first original Amigurumi.  I hope you like it!
