Altered CD Case - Tea Time

I love the autumn season! We have a deck at the back of our home where I love to sit and drink a nice cup of tea. Today I wanted to make an altered CD case for a friend who also loves her tea and I wanted to do it in an autumn theme.

I stated with some of the designer paper from the Ella Blue pad (Hobby Lobby), and made the back and front inserts. At the bottom of the front insert I attached the Happy Autumn sentiment (computer-generated) on a white strip backed with brown. The front insert was then slipped into the front of the CD case.

I had an embossed fall tree image that I received in a swap (thanks Melisa), so I wanted that for the main image. I die cut the tree (using a square die turned at an angle), then also cut a larger square to back the tree. I attached the image to the outside front of the CD case using pop dots. Inside I placed 4 packets of yummy cinnamon tea.
