We are here today to show you how to make a cd case. Obviously you'll need a cd and then a 9 X 12 sheet of paper. What you are going to do is center the cd as best as you can on the sheet of paper and you are going to take and fold this over close to the edge of the cd and try to keep it vertical with a nice sharp edge just like that and the same thing here on the left side. There you go. The next step is to take and bring it up so you have the bottom of your cd tucked in there, crease, and then the next is to bring down the top and then turn this a little bit so. Now this will be your top flap so for right now what you are going to do is reverse the tuck and make a little mark here so you know that is how far you need to cut or to bend it, open it up and you'll just do a little quarter inch snip. It doesn't have to be a very long one a deep one just follow those little edges and you are going to tuck this in not a real strong angle but not straight down. You do want it at an angle to go in it will make it easier to close it. The same thing on your other side, crease that down and then you bring the bottom up and tuck it in there you go. Now you turn it over and to just keep the corners from getting too beat up what you are going to do is take a coin, a quarter or a penny and just copy that curve right in there, bring it up to the edge, all four corners and if you get rid of these edges in here that will also make it a little bit stronger and you won't have to worry about that. So what you want to do is very carefully follow your edge that you have there on all four corners and the last corner a little bit of a curve and that will just make the envelope a little bit stronger for holding your cd. Thanks, have a good day.
