CD/DVD Cover Creator
|Grades||K – 12|
Why Use This Tool
The CD/DVD Cover Creator allows users to type and illustrate CD and DVD covers and related booklets to provide notes and other information. Children of all ages can use the tool to create covers for books, music, and movies that they have explored. They can also create covers for music and videos they compose themselves.
Following the prompts and tabs provided, children and teens can select what they would like to create: a CD cover, CD booklet, DVD cover, or DVD booklet. They can then use text tools to add formatting to their titles and notes, add shading to background areas of the covers and booklets, and draw original images to illustrate their covers and booklets. The covers and booklets can be printed out to replace existing ones or be used with CDs and films created by the children and teens. The sample DVD cover shows a simple front and back cover.
