by on Sep 3, 2008

1. For the photogs:
    You can use it as is or add a little patterned flare for some personality.

A picture frame with a pink flower and the words "sweet girl" encloses a picture of a young girl smiling.
2. For the restauranteur:
    Use them to hold your customers’ bills.
    Display your menus.
    Use them to hold promotional material.

Text is written on a piece of paper in a CD case near a spoon on a white surface.
3. For the Cover Girl wannabes:
    Turn them into a makeup pallet box;
    Or even a compact makeup station.
4. For the organized:
    Revamp that old case into a desktop calender;
    Or perhaps a desktop planner.

A calendar in a holder that is showing a dad and his daughter.
5. For the collectors:
    CD cases make for good transportation of your precious collections, such as coins and stamps.
6. For the artist:
    A little deconstruction will turn a CD case into a pencil case.
7. For the jewelry wearer:
    Use them as necklace holders;
    Or even portable jewelry boxes.
8. For the music lover:
    Turn an old CD case into a new CD cleaner. Especially brilliant!!
