We're doing several favours, to give people a choice. One of them is a compilation of our favourites from our wedding music, which is all compiled by the two of us. I didn't like the idea of using plastic cases, so I made my own.

I had rubber stamps made at Lakeview Rubber Stamp, of our names and our wedding date, so I could use them throughout the process for different things. I bought a package of 12x12 scrapbook paper in green, cut it to fit a cd, did the folds, punched the corners with a corner cut/emboss tool, and used a ribbon punch on the bottom. Threaded through ribbon in our wedding colours; magenta, chocolate brown and sage green, strung on a "thank you" charm on the inside. On the outside, I stamped our name and date, embossed the ink with a deeper shade of green embossing powder, and embellished the front with a two-toned pink blossom held in place with a brad. I did about 24 of them. Took me two evenings in front of the tv.

Thanks! Nice to hear some feedback. I feel like I'm working on all this stuff in a vacuum. My fiancee is really wonderful about complimenting me and thanking me for doing things like this, but it would be nice if my Mom or sister were around to do projects like this with!

I like our wedding date, too! It was a complete accident. The art gallery my friend owns and is renting to us for our reception, wasn't going to be available until the weekend after 4th of July. We started planning for it, and didn't figure out the 7/7/07 until we were getting my Grandmother's ring sized, that became my engagement ring, and the jeweler asked us. We said "the weekend after 4th of July." And he says "Cool, 7/7/07!". I felt a bit daft!

I really like these! We aren't having CD's but I like the style for tissue holder favors. I'm going to michaels to find a ribbon punch today  Smiley

That looks ABSOLUTELY amazing! I wish I had the patience to work with embossing powder. Gosh.

I am so new to paper crafts and have a few questions...

Is the tool you used on the corners like a stamp?  Or is it more complex?  About how much can one expect to pay for one of those?

Also, have you ever used a hand embosser?  They look like a pen with a stylus and I guess you run then on the back side of a paper with a stencil to raise an image.  I don't know.  I want to emboss a border on a paper but don't want to get a lot a of equipment.

It looks like she used a hair dryer! haha. that would be so cool if it works...

also, that corner stamp can be found simply in the scarpbooking section of a craft store. they're about the size of half dollars and work very well!
