I used a 8.5 X 11" felt piece. You can also use paper. I sewed all around it to add some character, made some pockets on the inside, and sewed some ribbon to tie it together. I glued an embellishment on the outside cover. Cute and simple! On the inside, I added some cute love coupons in one pocket. You can get other free coupons all over the net. Just look online and you will find! ;) I slipped the custom CD in the other pocket. I simply downloaded several love songs (I made sure to include our wedding song "At Last-by Etta James). I embellished the inside with felt hearts (you can stitch or glue them). I also used some letter stickers on the CD case and viola! My handmade Valentine is finished!
I'm working on a couple more crafts before I head out of town this weekend. I'll be back with more inspo. Hopefully a layout or two. Thanks for stopping by!! I appreciate all your wonderful comments!
