Still hanging on to CDs? Well, it can't be the storage solutions provided for them that's making you hang on so tightly. For some reason, no other form of physical media has ever inspired as unapologetically ugly accessories to store them than CDs have. Take a look at these few and see if you don't decided to finally just rip everything and have a totally digital music collection.
Need to give someone a CD or DVD you've burned, or have long lost the case for? Don't buy a new case — just follow this tutorial by DIY Maven for how to make a CD case with a simple piece of white paper.
All you need is a sheet of standard 8.5-by-11-inch paper, and to follow these super simple folding steps.
Even though I'd throw it together in a pinch, you could do as the post suggests and print a design on paper or use a sheet of already-printed or colored paper.
Designer Marian Lassak's CD Holder offers a unique spin on the usually plain CD case. I happen to like it because bar codes, which are machine-readable representations of information, seem to be inherently geeky.
They also remind me of the strange boy I had a crush on my freshman year of college who had bizarre barcode shaped tattoos all over his arms. Okay, so maybe my taste in men is questionable, but this case is totally lovable, isn't it?
Maybe it's because CDs have become obsolete in my life or because I'm not a huge soda fan, but I can't imagine using this Soda can DVD/CD storage container...and never mind the fact that it's ginormous! Featured on UberReview, this pop can holder can store up to 60 discs...just push in the front of the can as it will slide out for you, and place your CDs or DVDs in the dividers. Colors include green, yellow or white. Although I could put my DVDs in it, I'm going to be completely honest and say it wouldn't be my first choice for storing them. What do you think?
