Rockin' Grandma birthday gift with Hambo stamps Gardner

Here's part 2 of my MIL's birthday present. We don't really "do" presents as she would rather we spend the money on the kids' college funds, so I always try to put together a little something with heart. My 11 year old has an ipod and is constantly buying the latest and greatest tunes from I-tunes. I thought it would be fun to make her a mixed cd with all the "kids" music on it so she can stay as hip as she is. Is hip still a "useable" word?!? (just don't tell my kids I said that please) This is the outside view of the holder that I and my youngest son made to hold the CD. It matches her card, which is a couple of posts down.

This picture shows the inside of the holder and the decorated (and named) CD. Below is a close up of the CD. I stamped the Hambo gardner with staz on ink and then colored in with my bic Mark-it permanent markers (sharpies). I love those things - I got a pack of 36 of them at Staples for around $18! If anyone wants the directions to make these, just let me know and I'll get the measurements posted. Thanks for stopping in and don't forget to pull up your pants before you bend over to garden!!

how fun! I'm sure she'll get a chuckle. We just lost our I-tunes when our older computer bit the dust. :0(
Hey, how are you mounting/using your Hambos? I didn't realize that they came on sticky cushion. I'll have to look for cling.
