CD Mini Album

Hey! Sharing my first CD mini album. I wouldn't have dared to make this, if not for the swap arranged by the 3 stooges - Khushboo, Tejal and Soumya. And I must say their inpirations and helpful guidance helped me to make one and participate in the swap. I had absolute fun making this and I am now glued to making mini albums :)

**Picture heavy post**
The cover: I've used mixed sets of papers from Paper Mania for the entire album. The flowers are made using big daisy punch. The center of it is actually metal. I have used hair clips that come in different colors. I detached the twirls and placed them behind the flowers. The alphabet stickers are from Itsy Bitsy. The 1" craft binders are from A1 craft supply.
Panel 1: I have used bunting here using circle punch. For some more ideas on using circle punch, refer my tute here.
The frame die cut and tag are from Itsy Bitsy. The green butterflies are from Pie Lane. I also stamped the butterflies to create an added effect.

Panel 2: I really love this one coz it has a moving element. The four tags are lined together and fastened using an eyelet which allows movement. So when closed they all get in one line. When opened, they look like the pic below.
Panel 3:  These butterflies are from Itsy Bitsy again. I wanted to glam them up so I used my 5 petal flower punches for this. I have used 2 sizes of flowers, punched them on white glitter paper, cut each petal and stuck on to the b'fly. The center is done using black rhinestones. The flowers on the left are the ones made using small flower punch. 
Panel 4: Did you notice the bg here.... half moon shaped. Its a simple page to jot down Birthday memories. The cupcake and gift box embelishments are from Itsy Bitsy. 
Panel 5: I loved this page too..... the way it turned out to be. The letter I and white panel are handcut. Ribbons are from my stash. The pink flowers are punched using large flower punch. 
Panel 6: This is a simple one again. I added some flower shaped buttons. I cut a doily into half and used for bg on top of the PP. 
Panel 7: I have made a small pocket here with a tag insert.  
Panel 8: This is also an interesting page. I created some space for journalling. That cute li'l flag adds to the overall look of the page.  
Some more photos...... I just couldn't stop clicking :) :)

Tip: In case you don't have a punch to drill holes into the CDs, you can heat an iron nail and use it to drill holes in to the CD. I have used this technique for the CD Mini album.
