Recycled CD Letter Holder for Mom



Help Mom stay organized with a personalized recycled mail station - showcase her favorite flowers and reuse an old CD.  This project makes for a great mother's day gift or birthday present for a mom or another busy lady in your life.

Mom's CD Letter Holder


  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Heart, 6" x 1"
  • Three or four recycled compact discs
  • Floral fabric "fat quarter" (from quilting department)
  • Coordinating silk flowers, two small bunches
  • Serrated knife
  • Paraffin or candle stub
  • Scissors
  • Wide flat paintbrush
  • Ruler
  • Paper towels
  • Low temperature glue gun and glue sticks
  • White, thick craft glue


  1. Cut three or four 5 1/2" squares from fabric. For each CD, spread thin layer of white glue over label side and smooth a fabric square over glue; let dry and trim excess.
  2. Cut two 1 1/2" x 12" strips from fabric. Glue fabric strips around edge of foam heart, overlapping as needed. Clip corners and fold excess fabric to bottom; glue to secure. Note: If desired, trace heart onto wrong side of fabric and cut out; glue to bottom of heart.
  3. To make inserting discs easier, first cut 3/8"-deep, equally-spaced parallel grooves into top of foam heart. Cut straight down, not at an angle. Apply thin line of white glue along each CD slit and press discs 1/2" to 3/4" deep into slit.
  4. Glue silk flower bunch to each side of discs as shown.

This is great. I have over 100 CD's that I didn't know what to do with. Now I do.

This will make a lovely gift and a wonderful use of all those extra fat quarters I have been hoarding.
