Altered CD Case

My daughter wanted so badly for her friends to have these as a thank you gift for coming to her 9th birthday party.  I had ordered some of the Clear Mount Stamp Cases (4 for $4.95).  We measured the lining, scored the folds and started decorating.

She loves to sponge edges as much as I do so she had very pretty finger tips when she was done.  To do the Crown we stamped and embossed first.  We then masked the crown with another crown that I had stamped and cut out on a piece of scratch paper.  So when we stamped the "My Friend" it looked like it was behind the crown.  The butterfly was sprayed with the shimmer paint/rubbing alcohol mixture to give it just a bit of glimmer.

The inside we decided to put a post-it note pad, pen held on with a cable clip and a pack of gum stuck on with glue dots, all she thought we needed to add was a stick of lip balm...but we do not have any stores within a 30 min drive so she got what I had on hand. ;-)  (Her friends loved them anyway!)
