I'm really happy to be posting this project of mine.  I worked hard on it because it was so simple and quick.. and since I seem to need to get things done as quickly as possible, this was great for me.  I'm not sure if you will all think they are that great, but I'm acutally pretty proud of them :X

(sorry about the pics... very bright lamp...let me know if they don't show up):

Let me know if you'd like to know how I made them.  Any comments are appreciated Smiley


I get my pretty paper from this stack here.  It's pretty convenient because the sheets are just the right size.  You can use any kind of paper (magazine covers, printer paper, etc.) just as long as it's about 6x6.

take two sheets of paper...both 6x6.

Fold each side about 1/2 of an inch... you can also just take a CD and lay it against the paper to see how much you need to fold.

I just used an ordinary glue stick and it works really well.  You can probably also use rubber cement...

Fold the bottom 3/4 of an inch, also glue stick-ing this.

Should look like that.

You can check the size with a CD.

Then all you have to do is repeat the steps, but this time wrap it:

and then you're done! Smiley

Here's the opening where the CD goes in.

Super easy!

Hope this instructions are clear.  Let me know if you need any help or if anything is unclear.

Those are really cool!  I'm always trying to find ways to carry around individual CDs without having to buy anymore cases for CDs or shoving quite a few in one individual CD case.  I'd be interested in knowing how you did those.

I like them, too.

My guess is that they are cardstock printed with a pattern and folded into an envelope shape without a flap? Is there a closure?

MMan, I wish I knew where to find some of those stack/mini-stack things, they seem pretty awesome.

I think those are small sheets of scrapbooking paper? Scrapbooking paper is really useful. You can easily get large mixed packs at stores like Target. I've been using it with cardboard to make Japanese stab-bound photo albums. I use it for the cover and end papers.
