Step 1

Remove all inserts from the CD case, then trace it onto craft foam and cut. Trim edges of foam about 1/4" to 1/2" on either side so it fits snugly inside the plastic box.

Step 2

Create a face with chenille stems, buttons, pom-poms, and felt. Leave the corner of the mouth open for the bead to land in. Glue facial features in place and let dry.

Step 3

Cut chenille stems to fit around the edges, forming a frame, and glue in place. This prevents the bead from rolling out of the case. Seal edges of CD case with colored tape.
