very easy CD envelopes

11:06:00 PM

Rob has been working on getting some wedding gigs this summer and needed some CD envelopes to help him look more professional. Since we were short on time and didn't want to spend money on boring white envelopes, we opted for home-made. (May I just say, that when you think about it, you really can easily make so many things you think you have to buy.)

I wanted them to be minimal girly, but still have some sort of design element. I had some extra cardstock lying around and came up with this:

All you need is 11 x 5 1/2 inch cardstock, a sewing machine (or needle and thread) and a card/label.

Fold the paper "hamburger way" and fold one corner down leaving about 2 inches around the edges. Sew one short end, pivot and sew one long end. Place the card/label 1/4 inch from the long end so you catch it as you're sewing. The card should hold the folded part down. Tie knots with the string and your done!

Now you can use all the paper you bought when you were feeling ambitious. :)

  2. Rachel do you just get a kick out of life or what. It's like you find a way to use your talents no matter what you do. Creating always brings joy and excitement. They look great by the way. I can't quite tell where you sewed them.

  3. This looks much more appealing than the average, yellow/white envenlope, and the cd is much more accessible. Great job, Rachel!
