Make a Photo Album OUt of a CD Jewel Case

Learn how to make a cool photo album or brag book using a CD case. This makes a special gift by personalizing it for grandma, a special aunt, or best friend. You can give it to them blank and let them fill the pages or you can fill the pages with pictures, sayings, etc.

* Age Guideline: 8 Years +
* Time Required: 45-60 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

* CD Jewel Case
* Cardstock
* Ribbon
* Miscellaneous Craft SUpplies
* Craft Glue
* Stapler
* Scissors

Cut several pieces of cardstock about a half an inch smaller than the CD case. Cut as many as will fit inside the CD case. Stack your cardstock pieces on top of each other, lining up the edges, and put a couple of stages along one edge to make a booklet.

Now you can simply place this little booklet inside the CD case, or you can glue the stapled edge to the spine of the CD case. If you do glue it in, be generous with the craft glue and let it dry completely before you try to flip the pages. When you flip the pages of the book once the glue is dry, make sure you do so by folding the page close to the binding rather than pulling at the page and the binding.

Now your CD brag book is now ready to be decorated. Add a ribbon so you can tie the CD book closed. This is optional, but recommended. I added two ribbons. Embellish to your heart's content
