Be My CD Valentine

So right now I'm all about compact, small and easily packable holiday decorations. Don't get me wrong, I love big 'ol wreaths and elaborate decorations. However living in a 750 sq ft ( read that right) home requires some space efficiency on our part. So while I love decorating for various holidays I simply don't have the space for storing lots of large decorations. Hence, the small and easily packable decorations.

I decided to use Cd's (scratched, or ones I don't listen to anymore) and made fun Valentine decorations. I went with the round shape of the CD as my inspiration for the fun sayings, stamped onto cardstock. I used spray adhesive to adhere scrapbooking paper directly to the Cd's, and then decorated them with various Valentine scrapbooking embelishments I already had. You could also make a cute and unique "card" for a loved one for Valentine's day (Hubby is getting one).

What else could you do with these? Think about the cute and fun birthday cards you could make using the same technique.

Once again, linking up to Kimba's DIY Tuesday:
