Gift Box for CDís

Wait before you throw away those used calenders! Most likely they have beautiful motifs and you can create many items using them! Good calenders have also thicker pages which makes them sturdier for crafting with. Here, a small box was created to give CDís as a gift.



Paper Craft for Summer - Easy to Make CD Gift Box

For this project you will need:

- used calenders with colorful pages - paper should be of a thicker quality or choose from lots of available scrapbook papers
- white cardstock
- quilterís ruler
- stylus
- small squares of 2-sided self adhesive


1. Find a motif in your calender that you are fond of and cut it out the following size: 16 cm x 14.5 cm. When completed, a normal CD Box or 2 Maxi-CD boxes will fit within this box.
2. Cut the white cardstock out just a tad smaller than the calender page. This will be the bottom of the box. Cutting it smaller will ensure that the bottom half of the box will fit within the top half!
3. Follow the instructions in the link below on how to make boxes. The instructions on the link page are written for making boxes out of cards but the procedure is the same. Follow these steps for the calender page and for the white cardstock. On this project, the side walls measure 1 cm on all sides. When folded, the box will measure 14 cm (l) x 12.5 cm (w) x 1 (h).
