Thumbs up Quick way to make a paper CD case

I was burning off some DVDs for a friend and my cat mauled most of my paper CD wrappers. I have some slim jewel cases but they're bulky to send through the mail.

So, Im pretty good at improvising things, and I noticed a lot of printer paper. So I grabbed that and some tape. Put the CD in the center of the paper, folded up the bottom, then folded in the sides and taped them in place. Then I folded down the top for a "flap." to keep the disc from sliding out. Very simple, took me about 5 minutes to figure out, and about 30 seconds to make one afterwards. Just wanted to share this.

BTW, I made it without googling. I did look it up after, and there are ways to do it without the tape, but I kept tearing the papers doing it.

I've been doing that too (minus the tape) for a long time. I have a box of fanfold dot-matrix printer paper for free. Sure beats buying paper sleeves!

Re: Quick way to make a paper CD case

I have a ream of legal paper, I've hardly used, so that's how I wrap cd's. Been doing it
that way for years. Old school, but works fine.

Re: Quick way to make a paper CD case

I use this as a template. You print off, cut of sides, fold in half, fold side in, then put tape along the top. If made properly then the CD is held in by friction alone!

Re: Quick way to make a paper CD case

Excellent idea, I would however suggest getting some plastic slipcases, to avoid damage.

Re: Quick way to make a paper CD case

Well, I know you can buy the paper cases, but I had exactly $0.26 to my name. (The next day I got paid and shipped them off.)
