With the holidays over, it’s time to gather up photos and share with family and friends, especially if you tend to be the designated photographer in the group.

Add a personal touch to your presentation by creating this festive CD Folder to hold those photos and include a special message or provide a place for them to journal their own memories themselves of the holiday.

Therm O Web can help put this project together in a snap and help you kick off the new year sharing your fabulous photos with those you love.
