DMC's DIY paper lunch bag CD covers...
I've been making these fun CDR covers for years - inexpensive, crafty, and you can design, print or xerox any arty label you want... glue them on - or use rubber stamps, silkscreen, linoluem cut print... whatever.
The trick is to trim about an inch and a half off the open end of the bag so when it is folded over it tucks into the fold to stay closed and is more square.
For something extra, print out or xerox a little book to drop inside, or another label for the back of the bag to include more info about the music, the players, lyrics, etc... I use a trusty Sharpie marker to write on the discs, but you could get fancy with a computer printer label maker if you have one.
So - all you musicians looking for a cheap, easy way to package your music can DIY = do it yourself - with paper lunch bags.
