The last bit of tidying for the week was to take hundreds of photos off the hard drive, dull I know, however I already have a little craft solution to help me save my memories for the girls for the future. A CD scrapbook.
Here is how you make one:
Cut a piece of card 6 x 12". Mark holes evenly on the left hand side and punch out. Make a fold 6 1/2 " from the hole edge. This should leave the hole margin as single card, the rest as a pocket. Cut out a curve to help you slip in a CD. Stick this down with double sided tape.
You make a book of these. I am just adding three more pockets to an existing book. Cover grey board or card for the covers and hold the pockets together with book rings. Bit boring though?
Then you can decorate them and write little notes to remind you what is on the CD's. When I first made this book, I put all the papers and stickers into a bag with the book to keep it matching but they have run out now so I need to make a new book in new matching colours, this one has gone a bit awry at the end - but job done. Here are some of the other pages.
I tied teeny bits of ribbon that were too short for sewing round the rings and hey presto a CD book, a faster running computer and I am safe in the knowledge that I have all my photos and video clips should my computer decide to throw in the towel (the last one did and it was sooo hard to get all the stuff off, I nearly lost everything)
Happy Crafting whatever page of life you are on today?
