So I have a bunch of old calenders that I just can't throw out (the pics are too great)...

I decided to make a cd wallet - and here's how I did it!

1. I ripped some of my not so favorite pics from one of my old calenders Cry  Then I folded it two ways so that it divided into four parts - I then ripped holes in each square. (This was done to 3 pages)

2. Then I cut out circles out of paper protectors (any clear/thin plastic will do) that were a little bit bigger than the ones I tore out of the pages. I glued them over the holes onto the backside of the paper (gluestick).

3. After the 3 pages were finished, I ripped 2 more pages from the calender and folded them in half - I cut them along the fold and placed them inside each 'folded-finshed page' (hope that makes sense - this is done in order to divide the pages into two slots).

4. For the cover: I took a picture from a calender that I really liked and cut it in half - I joined each half to make it one long piece. I took my 3 finished pages and placed them on top of one another and folded them over (so now you've got a big thick square of folded pages) - this is then placed onto the middle (ish) of your long cover piece and fold the left side over the pages - then the right side.

5. Now that you've got a package of pages, if you will, then take a ribbon and thread it into a large needle. Poke the needle into the spine of your book so that it comes out of the back (leave some extra ribbon slack for later) Now that the ribbon is on the outside, bring the needle over the top of the spine so that the ribbon comes over the top and over so that your back inside the book - then poke a hole just like the first time, but at the top of the spine. Now your back on the outside - you can tie a bow at the top. The slack that was left on the inside should be able to reach the top so that you can tie a knot. So now the pages are stuck in there. (god, this is probably so confusing) Huh

6. Now you can take some velcro and either glue it (or get the kind that's in the pic - it's peel & stick) and put it on the end of the cover so that it will hold everything nice and cozy like.

And that's it!

The only problem w/ mine is that, in time, I think the paper will scratch the cds. So if you're gonna do this, then I suggest adding a soft/thin fabric to each side of the middle paper of each slot.

Hope this was confusing and helpful at the same time! Wink

Yay!  I have the same calendar.  Looks pretty cool, although I don't really understand how you made it.  I don't think paper would scratch the CDs very much, but it wouldn't be as durable as fabric.

It looks really good , i like it a lot but im paranoid about the scratches that can be made and dust collecting in it.

Yes - I'm thinking the same thing... that's why I"m thinking that some fabric added will do the trick!  Smiley

This is a great idea; I have tons of calendars I don't like to get rid of, that just sit there. Here's some real use for it!
The instructions are confusing, but I think I got how to make it. Must try this!
