i don't want to spoil the fun for anyone, but if you -like me- create a lot of these, you might be interested in this template

So, let me simplify the diagram to cut it right:

I did the same construction steps in Inkscape, then used the Union tool to make the cutting outline only. I haven't actually tested it properly yet (no A3 printer at home) but the final shape is only 28cm square (not 35mm) so it will fit on A3... either that or I did something badly wrong!

Hopefully I can put artwork on the hex face before printing and have the pretty back.

Neat, but seems like a lot of work for one CD sleeve.

I think this is sick but don't you think this should have some tissue paper in it so it wouldn't scratch up the cd
Tissue paper is much more likely to scratch the CD than paper. So that would probably be a bad idea.
Nah, information side goes down on the smooth part so you can write on the top anyway. No scratches, and the friend opens it to more of your artwork.

It's pretty confusing........

This is really beautiful!! I made one ...at the end I added the next folding(X6):mountain between the top of the flower petals and the point of the hexagon angle ...so it looks better! THANKS!

WOW, I am really impressed...
Very nice Instructable. Despite what people have said about the lack of information, if you watch the video it's all very simple to follow (except closing the petals, but figuring out for myself was more fun!). Once you've done it once, remembering it is easy and I did it on my first attempt, I made mine out of some nice cardboard. Thanks again :D

Very creative! Good information about, step by step and plus video! Don't need more than this. PERFECT!!! Thank you.

Very nice! You could also make a simpler version by stopping at circle 7 in step 1. That should make one that is more rounded, but doesn't have that extra set of "petals" in the center. PS: probably wouldn't hurt to show more clearly how you tuck in the final petal when you fold it up...

Needs more instructions on how to draw the case and how to fold the case. Just my opinion.

I like the way it looks, but could never do it because I don't know what size paper to start with, either.

I think there's enough information there -- you just have to educate your eye a little. Golics, a beautiful approach and method to realize it.
