Welcome to 3-D Thursday and this week we have a great project for you to help start the New Year off all organized – it’s a Desktop Clear CD Calendar Holder!


This week’s project was created by the fabulously lovely Twila Davis over at Stamp a Little Longer and she came up with this wonderful project – further down this post you will find a link to the FREE Project Sheet that has step by step instructions & color photos so that you can create your own beautiful project.

And here it is…one of the things I love about this project is that you could easily change the background depending on the season we are in…


The base stand part is an empty clear CD case – how cool is that?  And what a great way to repurpose and recycle – Twila is AWESOME at that!

You can use your favorite pretty papers to create the insert – these papers are from the Petal Garden DSP Stack – add a stamped image and a calendar and voila – one cute & very functional decoration for your desk!

The stamped image is from a brand new upcoming set called ‘Waterfront’ featured on pg 48 of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and it is one of 6 sweet sentiments…


One last look – the calendar pad used here is sized 2 1/4″ x 3″ and Twila found it at Vippies.com – click here to find that size (large) along with a couple of others…


As well as making one for yourself, I think this would make a fantastic New Year’s teacher gift – they are quick & easy to make and I am going to dig out some of our old CD cases and get busy over the Christmas break!
