Compact-Disc Card

An allowance for concert tickets or for a new CD will charm the music lover on your list.


  • CD case with liner notes
  • Heavy gift wrap
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Money
  • Ribbon


  1. Step 1

    Use a real CD and liner notes as templates. Outline unfolded liner notes on heavy gift wrap; cut out, fold in half, and slide into an empty CD case (available at record stores).

  2. Step 2

    Outline CD on heavy card stock, cut out, and add greeting. Fold money into a square; center it atop cardboard disc; with a pencil, mark position of corners. Using marks as a guide, cut four 1/2-inch diagonal slits in the cardboard. Tie a bow around money square, and slip into disc as shown.
