I have made these before.
I used a desktop publishing program and made cover inserts for the cd case, and then glued a note pad inside the back cover. A small pen fits in the edge of the case when it is closed.
If you search the internet there are template sites where you can get templates for the cd case covers, for different programs, or in .jpg or some other format.
There is a photo of one I made in my Yahoo! photos. Sorry I don't have a photobucket account to upload it here.

Hope this helps.

Enjoyed looking through your photos. May I ask where you got the graphics for the golf teabag?? And how think is the cork for the starburst?? Love your snowflakes!!

I don't recall where the graphics came from for the golf tee bag I use Microsoft Publisher for most of my tags & toppers, so it most likely came from there. for the border I created my own in Publisher using a golf ball graphic. If I locate the original graphics I'll post again.
I slice a piece off the end of a wine bottle cork, not quite 1/2" thick, for the starbursts.
Hope that helps some.

Thanks Penny for asking for these.
Hi Terri how are you, nice to 'see' you here.
CarolB I loved looking through your photos - did you use one continuous piece of paper for the paper angels or two separate ones? Thanks for sharing.

The paper angels are made from two pieces of paper twist (I think that is what it is called. It all rolled up like twine or rope.) Unroll the pieces of paper twist and with one piece fan one end out. Scrunch or roll the other end back up so it can be glued into the hole in a wooden bead for the angel's head. Twist the other piece in the middle to make wings and glue onto the back of the first piece.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Carol for explaining - I thought it was done this way but now I know for sure. I have a new roll of paper twist, just have to get me some wooden beads and I'll be all set for paper angels now! Thanks Carol.

Carol...your cd notepad holders are great. I do have a few questions though (if you don't mind). Are you removing the insert that holds a cd? If so, is there an easy way to remove it? If I remove it from the cases I have, there will be a void left on the hinged side of the case. What did you do with the open section? I hope this makes sense. TIA for your help! CJ

thank you Carol for sharing the pictures. thats what i was look for. and i love the angels...penny

Yes I do remove the insert that holds the CD. I usually use a letter opener to pry it out.
I think the void you are refering to is where I put a mini pen. It sits in there quite well when the case is closed.
Hope this helps.

Carol, I love the Candy Cane Mouse...did you use a pattern for the mouse??? Would you be willing to share it?

Carol...thank you. That explains everything perfectly. Now all I have to do is find the little pens. Thanks again! CJ
