I make DVDs for my preschool parents, each year, of all the pictures and scrapbook pages I made through out the year, about the time I spend with their children. About two years ago, I started making these ornaments to hold them, the parents love them so much, I now make them for grandparents too!

I also make DVDs of all our family photos though the year. My mother looks forward to getting the ornament as much as she does the DVD.

This pack includes 2 (front and back) 11×8.5, 300 DPI templates, in PSD and PNG format, and the below tutorial, on how to assemble your ornament. Approved for Personal Use, Scrap For Hire, Scrap For Others, and Commercial Use. Quick Page and Creative Team friendly. Shadows on templates for preview purposes only.

CD/DVD Christmas Ornament

To assemble your ornament.

1) Print on heavy duty cardstock.

There is a small amount of extra space on the bottom circle of each or my templates. This is to provide a cut bleed area.

2) Use circle cutters to cut out the front and back of your ornament.

3) You need a strong adhesive to ensure your CD Ornament stays together, when the weight of the CD is added, and it hangs on a tree.

To leave an opening, for you CD to slide in and out, do not apply adhesive to about five twelfths of the ornament, on one side, 12 and 5 on the clock. Apply adhesive to the underside, outmost edge, and with backs facing each other, stack.

4) Punch hole for ribbon

5) Thread ribbon through hole, creating a loop for hanging

6)  Add your CD/DVD and your ornament is done.

Tips:

Print layers separately, then add Pop-Dots between the layers, and stack,  to add depth.

Instead of using the provided word art, use a photo, baby’s handprint or details/journaling about what is on your CD/DVD.

Here is a similar ornament, I made a couple of years ago.

I hope your enjoy the Mini Book, and CD/DVD Ornament templates!

Have a great rest of the day!!
