Hi Cassie where have you been? Hope you are well.
Some years ago I saw a decorator do a room in a fire house. She glued patches from various uniforms from the firemen over the years to the inside of each CD case and somehow hung them on the wall. It looked like the patches were kind of floating on the wall.
On a scrapbooking program I saw a gal make an accordion album to fit in a CD case and filled it with pictures of her new baby. She sent them to the grandparents, aunts, uncle and friends etc.
Although I have no idea how it was done I’ve seen them attached to one another to form a square. Each had a photo in it then a vase of flowers was set in the middle of the square and sat on a table at a wedding reception. These were in those clear ones not the ones with the black back. It was lovely.

I use alot of unmounted rubber stamps. To store them I take the "guts" out of the cd case and lay my stamps inside. I then label the case and they stack on top of each other so nice on a shelf.

This one of the coolest things I've seen done with them...a photo totem pole plant stand:

Or you can call the library and see if they need them. I get music and movies from the library and alot of times the cases are cracked.

I've recently started using that type of stamps. THANKS! What a neat (pun intended) idea! I'm going to be so organized.
