Decorative Way To Wrap a CD

This way to wrap a mix tape is 10X more cute than any plastic CD case, and here's how you can make it too!

Step 1. Lay construction paper (10X8) down, landscape wise.
Step 2: Place CD in right upper-hand corner.
Step 3. Fold bottom of paper up enough so that it's past half way, yet the CD still has paper above it.
Step 4. Fold down the middle, in half, so it resembles a book.

 (This is what it'll look like when folded closed.)

 Step 5. Staple the edge of the paper closed, so that the CD wont roll out.

 Step 6. Write a little message on the inside flap, would be perfect for a birthday card/present too!

Step 7. Fold closed and wrap with a festive ribbon.

Dry-erase markers, pom-poms, and hot glue is all you need to make an easy & practical gift for a teacher. The pom-pom end serves as an eraser, perfect if you only need to erase something small. Also a great way to prevent erasing with one's finger. 
Teachers will love this!

Candy Cane Cocoa


I love hot chocolate. It's definitely my favorite part of winter. This year, I put candy canes in my cocoa, and was delighted. Candy cane cocoa is the best, and i suggest you try it by crushing candy canes  (or just peppermints) into your cocoa before you heat it. Additional candy cane for stir stick, optional.
