CD book

When I visited the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally recently, I watched Linda Elbourne demostrate various techniques. She had also brought along a few examples of her work, one of which was a book made from old CDs. This grabbed my attention and so I decided to give it a go. This is the result.






The question I wanted answering when I first saw Linda's book was 'how do you cut the CDs?' Well, score a line with a craft knife 3 or 4 times. Use a heat gun to warm the scored line and then cut it with scissors. It worked first time! I used my Bind-it-All to bind the pages together. I did think I had broken my machine when I punched the holes into the first page, but it's a sturdy little thing and it was fine.

What a beautiful work you done! It's so amazing. I like the inner pages' design. I want to try something like this in someday.
