Homemade CD Envelopes for Art Submissions

The other day my husband brought home a CD from Ubuntu computer company, who made a nifty CD envelope for a promo. I thought it was a great idea for artists who are submitting art to companies. You can do it by just printing a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of your artwork. It's more of an attention grabber than a traditional CD cover, and is more likely to be picked up out of a pile and opened. It sure got MY attention!

Step 1. Start With a sheet of paper printed on one side (if you have text, note text direction changes in each section).

Step 2 &3 . Fold bottom and sides, and make triangle fold on top.



Step 4: Tuck triangle flap into bottom.

Step 5: Note: Opposite side has an area to design also. Make sure to add your contact info.
