Image of a inked and stamped CD envelope with one of my Fat Little Book pages inside.

I recently discovered that the perfect swap packaging for Fat Little Book Pages are simple paper and glassine envelopes for CDs. I was delighted to discover this as these are inexpensive and available at any office supply store.


Plain white paper CD envelopes

2 or more colors of dye inks

rubber stamps

round sponge

What the CD envelope looks like prior to altering - too boring:)


  1. I picked 2 colors of dye inks -Butterscotch & Espresso Adirondack- that went with the 4x4 Chunky Page.
  2. With a round sponge I started with the darker of the 2 inks and sparingly sponged small amounts of it randomly on the front and the back of the CD envelope.
  3. Using a clean spot on the sponge I filled in the rest of the white area with the lighter color of ink.
  4. I then picked 2 stamps and added the images using the darker of the two inks.
  5. Next use a clean area of the sponge or a paper towel to remove the ink from the glassine window of the CD envelope.
  6. Done!! Simple way to dress up your chunky book page packaging.
