CD Holder and Tutorial

cd holder

This CD holder is one of the projects my stamp club will be making this month. I often make music and picture CD's for friends and family, so this will be a nice way to turn them into pretty gifts instead of just sticking them in generic jewel cases or paper sleeves. Want to make your own? Here are the supplies you'll need:

Sheet of 8 1/2"
8 1/2" x 11" cardstock
Sticky Strip
1 3/8" circle punch
Scissors/Paper Trimmer
Bone folder

Step 1:  Trim your cardstock to 10" x 6". Score at ½” along each 10” side. Turn your cardstock 9o degrees (so that the 10” side of the paper is butted up to the top of your paper trimmer) and score at 5”.  Fold with a bone folder.

Step 2:  Trim off the the small flaps at the top and bottom left side of your cardstock. If you're using textured cardstock, it's important to make sure that the texture is face down. Your cardstock should look like this:

Step 3:  Apply sticky strip to the inside of the small flaps on the right hand side, as shown below. Fold the left side of the cardstock over, securing it to the sticky strip. You should now have a pocket. 

Step 4:  Take your 1 3/8" punch and punch a half circle in the middle of the open side of the pocket, as shown below. Now all you have to do is embellish it!

Supplies used: Summer Days Simply Scrappin' kit, 1 3/8" circle punch, red wide grosgrain ribbon.
