Printable for Mixed CD of Love Songs
Feel like you’re running out of time for a Valentine’s gift, but want still want it to be meaningful? AND you don’t exactly have a ton of time or money to spare? Well, stop your fretting, we’ve got you covered – make your honey a creative and thoughtful CD mix filled with the best love songs! Plus, what a great Valentine’s gift idea to help set the mood for the entire night!
Crystal from A Well-Feathered Nest created some super cute printable options for your CD packaging. I love the simplicity of Crystal’s designs – they’re gorgeous, but SO versatile! Go check out the rest of her incredible designs – you’re sure to find something else you LOVE, too!
I printed mine on the back of a brown paper grocery bag – talk about upcycling!! BUT if you don’t have those just lying around, Kraft Paper would definitely give you the same look. They would also be SO cute on a Bright Color Paper or even just White Cardstock – see, versatile!! I also had to use some colorful CDs to match the designs – I just couldn’t help myself!
Give a CD as part of a personalized Valentine’s gift by grabbing your totally and completely FREE printables, right here (and right NOW!) – you’ve got a few options to choose from… or if you’re feeling especially motivated, you can snag all three at the bottom of this post!
Here are a few tips for printing:
If you want to replicate the brown paper bag look, just cut a piece of a large bag to be the size of a regular sheet of paper and feed it into your printer! A heavy duty cardstock works best for a more sturdy sleeve, but any paper will do the job!
Look for the box in your printer menu that says “Fit to Page” and make sure it is NOT checked or your sleeve might print out the wrong size!
To make this Valentine’s gift even easier for you to give, the divas have come up with some of their favorite romantic and fun love songs. All you have to do is click to grab these songs and put them on a CD for your love. We’ve created three different song mixes to choose from (but you can totally feel free to mix and match or even create your own from scratch to make a completely personalized gift).

Here’s a fun idea to make your CD even more special – put a secret or hidden track on your CD! How fun would it be to add a song that’s NOT listed on the back and would be a total surprise to your spouse as they’re listening?! It would be so romantic to include their favorite love song or the song from your first dance as a married couple! If you’re looking for a few bonus tracks or want something different to add in, here are just a few more, classic Diva favorites!
Put together these playlists as just one part of a romantic Valentine’s day! Add a few more quick and easy touches by checking out these hysterical Valentine’s Day Cards (these seriously had me laughing SO hard) and planning a Romantic Valentine’s Dinner at Home for the total package this Valentine’s day.
