Make Your Own CD Envelope

I'm always excited to receive freebies from my MyMemoriesSuite Group. I missed posting some of them because I have not been blogging a lot. But these ones here are too cute, I can't resist sharing. With these feebies, you will be able to make CD Envelopes! You could use these cute CD envelopes for cards, music cd's and even family or wedding pictures.

Ready to make your own CD envelopes? It's easy with this tutorial from MyMemoriesSuite. 

A. First download these freebies by clicking on the links below the photos.



{Note: All of our Freebies are MyMemories Suite Compatible. It means that you can now load the freebies directly into your MyMemories Suite Software, and then completely customize them with any paper and embellishments that you have.  Don't have a MyMemories Software? No problem, you can still download the sample project and the elements, but will not be able to customize the projects.}

B. Now, on to the CD Envelope Tutorial. Thanks to the wonderful people of MyMemoriesSuite for spending their time and unleashing their creativity on this project, and most of all, for sharing this tutorial with us. 


CD Envelope Tutorial

  1. Print your CD envelope and card on cardstock and gather supplies.  (Recommended supplies: craft knife, cutting mat, metal edged ruler, small scissors, glue runner, bone folder)


2. 
Start with the card and fold on the fold guides in the middle of the page.  You do not need to fold anywhere else for the card, because the rest will be cut off.



3.  With the card folded in half, use the metal edged ruler and craft knife and cut along the bottom edge and the sides.  Cut about ¼” in from the printed edge.  This will make your card slightly smaller than the envelope so it will fit inside.


4.  
Now you have a finished card.


5. Next are the instructions on making the envelope.  Take the printed envelope and fold on all fold lines.  There should be a total of 4 folds.


6. 
Cut along the outside edges using scissors.



7.  
Fold the 2 side flaps in towards the middle and apply glue along the side edges of the back piece.



8. Push the back piece up to adhere the sides and the back together.  This will form your envelope.




9. You can now write inside your card and put a name on the front of the envelope and you are ready to share your fun card and envelope.  Enjoy!!




Using MyMemories Software to Customize your CD Envelope

  1. Download template file and install it into your software
  2. Using MyMemories Suite, choose Create Album From Designer Template and find your project
  3. Now you can print and enjoy the provided template, or customize it with your own papers and embellishments.
  4. Follow the CD Envelope Tutorial above.  
  5. ***TIP: You can right-click on the white guide and lock it in place to keep it from moving while you are working. Make sure this is the top layer of your project before printing. ***Instead of adding the paper as a background paper, you can add it as an embellishment so that you can move the paper around.  This is especially useful when using papers with stripes or circles, so you can decide which part of the paper you want to use.***Once it is added as an embellishment, you can now select the paper and move it into the position you want it.
