In recent years, emojis have made the leap from phone keyboards out into the real world.

They can now be found everywhere from home decor, fashion to food, party decorations and hair accessories (just to name a few!). Unless you’ve been living underneath a rock, you’ll know that one thing is for sure – emoji are only becoming more and more popular as time goes on.

With this trend, I have planned to recycle all my old CD's to an awesome Wall-Decor

So let me help you to make one for yourself.
