Summer CHA Folder

Hi, I hope you all are surviving the heat.  Before you know it fall will be upon us.  I don't mind the heat but anything over 100 degrees is a bit much, even for me. :)

Today I am sharing a decorated CD/DVD folder that is quick and easy to make and a nice way to dress up CD/DVD's that you might give as gifts.  Below you will find a PDF with the  measurements/instructions to create one for yourself.


After cutting, scoring and folding the cardstock to create the folder, I cut an opening in the front flap of the folder with a decorative punch.  Any punch will work, be creative!
Once that part is done, you will want to run some strong adhesive onto the glue tabs and then fold in half to create the pocket.  I used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots and it worked perfectly!  I also used the Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots to adhere the pretty print cardstock from Authentique to the front of the folder.  To hold the button firmly in place, I used Tombow Power Tabs.

Quick tip:
Remember to finish off your buttons with some floss, twine or ribbon to give your project a "finished" look.

Click HERE for a PDF file of the instructions.  If you create a folder (or two), come on back and leave me a link, I would love to see them.
