MAKE IT CUTE
Keep it personal with a playlist prezzie
In our December/January 2010 issue, GL's editors spilled their favorite holiday crafts, recipes and DIY gifts. This year, we're bringing them back, just in time for the holidays!
Here's online editor Cait's how-to on making a super-personal present, perfect for anyone: a playlist.
CD Jewel case
Playlist of songs that remind you of the gift-getter
Markers (or type and print the playlist)
Sparkles, gems, buttons, etc.
Burn the tunes onto a blank CD. Label the “album” with the title of your choice. Type out or handwrite the list of songs that you used on your CD. Make it look really pro by adding track numbers, artists and song lengths. Cut track list to slip inside the back part of the CD case. If you can’t open the back, just glue the sheet. Measure a square of paper to match the size of the case. Glue pics to the square. Let dry. Then, glue square (with pics) to the front of the CD case.
Decorate with album title and little trinkets—concert tix, shells, sparkles, gems, whatever.
