Introduction: 30 Second CD Case

How to make a CD case in 30 seconds or less with a piece of paper (8.5x11) and a CD.

Step 1: Fold 1

Fold one of the short edges (8.5 edge) up about an inch. Crease it.

Step 2: Fold 2

Now fold the paper in half on the long dimension. Do not unfold the first fold.

Step 3: Folds 3 and 4

Undo your last fold so you are looking at a piece of paper with a one inch fold at the bottom and a crease down the middle. Position a CD in the "pocket" at the bottom and centered on the crease. Now, fold one of the long sides over the CD. Next, do the same to the other side.

Step 4: Folds 5 and 6

Now, at the top (the end without the CD) fold a corner to the center crease like you do when you make a paper airplane (photo 1). Next do the same to the other top corner.

Step 5: Final Fold

You need to take the "tab" you just made and put it in its "pocket". The photos will help explain this step. Crease the fold.

Step 6: Done!

To get the CD out, you have to unfold folds 3 and 4 and pull the cd out. If you want to label the case I recomend you take the disk out first.
