Craft Roundup: Make It Your Own

From tricked-out sunglasses to an animal CD case, these DIY projects let kids put their personal touch on everyday accessories and items

Craft Roundup: Make It Your Own

When they see a great idea or product, crafters always know how to make it all their own! This week's Make It roundup features projects with fantastic personal touches – some small, some big. Adding your own personality to a project can be as simple as a bit of glitz on a pair of sunglasses – or making your very own on-the-go, out-of-this-world learning kit. If you've recently created a project that's "so you," make sure to share it with us!

Animal CD Cases

Mmmcrafts' Larissa Holland created bunny-themed CD holders as Easter gifts – and an any-time-of year way to dress up a plain jewel case. I bet many animals found in the zoo would work as subjects for this sort of decoration!
