Reuse and Repurpose Your Old CD Cases

CDs are becoming a thing of the past with MP3 downloads and digital media.  Do you have a CD tower filled to the brim with your favorite tunes?  Do you have stacks of  plastic cases?  I've listed some ideas on how keep landfills free of  plastic CD cases and ways you can re-purpose and reuse.


Make wall art:  This tutorial is in Country Living Magazine.  Click here or click the pic to go to a tutorial on how to make this festive display using 20 CD cases. The tutorial says to print out 5 3/8" x 4 5/8"  pictures on photo paper, but there are other options.  For example, you can reuse old calendars, posters, or picture of artwork that otherwise would end up in the trash.  Just cut 5 3/8" x 4 5/8" squares from your favorite print, back them with a piece of cardboard the same size, and insert it into the CD case. Voil√†!

Make a CD Carousel: Love this idea!  I found this on a blog by Sunrise Packaging.  Click the pic below to see the tutorial on how to make the carousel filled with your favorite pictures!  There is also a link on the tutorial about  how to make a CD photo cube.  These are nice ideas of ways to reuse the cases!

Freecycle: Put unwanted CD cases on Freecycle so that indie bands can use them for packaging their demo or album CD's. It's a great way to share with the community!
