With a little help from Dad, your child can turn a CD case into a picture-perfect present.

Materials: An empty CD case, colored paper, pencil, kid-friendly scissors, family photo, your child's artwork, a glue stick, ribbon, craft glue.

  1. Measure and cut out two squares of colored paper to fit each side of an empty CD case. Helpful tip: Trace the liner notes from the case for the correct size.
  2. Use a glue stick to attach a photo to one square and some of your child's artwork to the other square.
  3. Open the CD case, and slide in the paper squares—one into each side. Glue on decorative details such as bows or ribbons.
