Altered CD!

Hello everyone! Here is a altered CD! This was inspired by Creative Inspirations: Challenge #56- Altered CD and Just Buggins challenge #33 April Showers: Make a spring themed project. Here is a little on how I altered the CD. I handmade the rose with gift wrap tissue paper and crepe streamer paper and I dipped the rose in hot wax to give the rose a gloss shine. I cut (2) circles with the Cricut Expression for front and back of CD and glued them to CD. I embossed the circle with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I used my Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite to punch holes around CD. I ran tulles though hole on CD. I glued the butterfly, flower,lace,ribbon with beads and gems to CD. This rose was my grandma's favorite paper rose to make. She made these all the time in different colors. Have a great week everyone!

Cartridge used:

Plantin SchoolBook (circle) on page #72 cut at 4 3/4 in.
