Facts regarding the CD mini album swap.. Questions and queries answered.. ;)

We've been having a lot of queries regarding the first swap, so let me just clarify a few points:

1) The overall cost of the Project is mentioned at a max of INR 400...This is an estimated budget we have given to keep your projects within it so as to be fair to all... It includes everything, the cost of
glue, PPs, embellishments.. Since it is a 5 CD mini, after using up all the supplies it would roughly come to this. Again it is JUST an approximation and not the rule of law. The mentioned cost does not include the cost of shipping the album to the recipient!

2) I know a lot of you are worrying about how to punch holes on your CDs in case you do not have a crop a dile. Well crafters, neither of us have a crop a dile but we do have an alternative for it. Come
Thursday it would be revealed to you so please keep an eye on the blog.

3) Am posting two links to a tute on how to make a CD mini album for the convenience of first timers can check the link here.  The first one is a blog with pictorial depiction and for those who find it easy to understand with a video ...the second link is just for you 

4) There were doubts regarding the possibility of sticking paper on the CD... yes a CD has shiny surface but the PPs do stick on it.. All you need is good fevicol/ fevibond or Double sided tape.
... and let it rest.. Please do not fiddle with it else you would definitely end up wasting the CD and the paper. Once it dries completely it is good to be used. Moreover just a tip..Make sure you evenly spread out the glue on the CD and not have an unequal distribution else it shows.. Yes it really does... How you embellish it is up to you!!

5) The theme in itself I suppose has flummoxed a lot of people.. So let me clear all the confusions pertaining to it.  The theme is ME.. 

It will be a blank album which you will create for the recipient to fill in his/her photographs!
Blank add the PP and create space for photos and journaling and send it over to the recipient who will then use it and make an album depicting themselves. If you do add the sentiments, keep them generic...
Photo Source
You are just giving your partner the canvas, on which they will paint their memories and journaling....

This is what a blank page means.
 Bring out your personalities in your creations!!

I hope this has clarified all the doubt we've had so far.. Any further doubts and I would keep editing this post and publishing it to have all the queries under one roof... :

Have a great day.
