The on-line doll club that I belong to had a challenge to make an album or book out of old CDs.

I started out thinking I'd do a Steampunk book......as I love Steampunk......but I'm not sure if I truly stuck to my theme.
It may be more like Steampunk meets Monty Python....LOL
So here is what I made...
Below is a video showing how to do a simple album. I chose not to punch a hole in the CDs because I simply didn't have anything that would put a hole in them. Instead I used ribbon as hinges and it worked out well.
A little hint. If you are going to make one of these books and use ribbon as I did then put your hinges on first and put the book together. That way the hinges won't show because you will be covering them with your paper:)
After I was finished I covered the edge of each of the CDs with a thin gold cord. The majority of the images I used came from The Graphics Fairy. There are lots of places where you can get free images. Here are just a few that I have on my blog list.
