If you're anything like me, you're always losing or breaking those silly plastic CD cases... well a while ago I decided to simply stop using them.  Of course, since that decision I've scratched up some good mixed discs.  Well finally I have a better solution!  Make my own disc sleeves out of magazine pages:

I took these pages from a magazine / catalog sent to me by Heifer International (a great charity... check them out if you haven't already)


Here are the front of the disc sleeves...


.. and here are the backs of the disc sleeves.


I think this is a really good way to reuse paper, save money (don't by those plastic cases), protect your discs AND save the planet a bit (please, don't buy those plastic cases!).  On top of that, you can fancy these up to add a nice personal touch to burned CD... especially ones given as gifts.  If you want to learn how to make these sleeves, you can check out this page of my website.

Those are so much fun to make! I tried to make 1000 of them for good luck but I gave up around 300... xD

I have a whole bunch of fliers advertising a series of concerts (but all the fliers are the same), does anyone want them?
