Picture This

This is a quick and easy project and I was able to use supplies I already had on hand.  I’ve been knocked out by a really bad cold this week, so this was something I could handle. 


This is what I used to make this project:

  • A promotional CD that was just laying around;
  • Some Christmas themed scrapbook paper;
  • A few chipboard or embellishments;
  • Glue Dots;
  • Picture of your choosing;
  • Ribbon;
  • Mod Podge;
  • Little bit of hot glue {for the ribbon attachment}.


First I traced the CD on the back of the scrapbook paper and cut it out inside the drawn circle.  I chose complementary scrapbook papers for each side of the CD.  I Mod Podged the paper to each side of the CD.  I did not do a top coat.


I printed out two favorite pictures of my granddaughter, one for each side.  When the scrapbook paper dried, I attached the pictures using the glue dots.  These are called Zots.


Do not touch the glue dots with your fingers {it says it on the box}.  They really mean it.  Don’t touch them with your fingers, they become a mess.  Just take your picture or embellishment and place it on the glue dot where you want it and it will attach.


I then added some embellishments to the one side and on the other side, I used triangles I cut from the diamond patterned paper as picture corners.




I chose a Christmas ribbon that says “believe” and used that to attach just underneath the one picture, with a dot of hot glue, as the hanger.




Just make sure you have your pictures set up the same way on both sides.  I messed up one, but I’ll keep that one for me.

CUTE, CUTE, CUTE! Ornaments that I made of photos of my kids are still some of my most favorite. The kids love to see them too. This is really cute and a great idea. Your grand daughter gets cuter every day.

How precious! I have heard of Zots. Are they better than Glue Dots? I just purchased these for a project from Michaels.
