First you have to find CD case that will suit to your needs. I’ve chosen to be in round shape with around 12 layers inside, each can fit 2 CDs. The idea is to put your pictures and quotes in the place of the CDs. When you a choosing your pictures be a little creative and choose the best moment spent with your father. Maybe starting with pictures from you when you were baby, then some pictures where you are playing together etc.
Now, you have to choose which pictures you are going to use. Have in mind that the pictures have to be big as one CD. To help you a little I’ve already measured the size of the CD, it is around 12 cm diameter. When you have chosen your pictures it’s time to print them.

Now, take one CD, draw some circles on your pictures and cut those circles using scissors. This circles are going to replace the CDs inside the case. As you know the possibilities are limitless so you can also choose some quotes instead of pictures. You can fill the case for CDs only with pictures, with pictures and quotes or using only text.

I’ve decided to mix pictures and quotes. Some of the quotes I’ve used were:
” If daddy can’t fix it, we are all screwed. ”
” Strong hands, soft heart. ”
” Daddy’s little girl. ”
” Daddy you ROCK! ”

You can be creative and use some other quotes. Also have in mind that you can use case in a square shape, but I’ve found this one that worked perfectly for me. Also, know that you can decorate the outside of the case. I’ve used this project as fathers gift so the outside suited perfectly for my occasion. To give this gift more personal touch you can always type the text by yourself using some interesting handwritten font or you can print them. I’ve chosen to use mixed quotes. Half of them were printed and the other half were written. For writing I’ve used black pencil, but you can use anything you think will work, maybe some stamp if you have or maybe marker in any color that you want.
After you write the quotes, take some old CD, draw a circle as big as the CD and cut it using scissors. To decorate a little your quotes you can always draw some pattern in the background. For example, on the one quote by the edges I’ve drawn a little stripes so I got some effect like sewing. You know that the possibilities are limitless and you can use anything you want. Just use your imagination.
Just know that you don’t have to fill all the album right now. You can add some pictures later.
