Material Scraps

Thumb tacks, white or silver or brass (example shown on our site)

Wire cutters
Cut your thin material about an inch larger than your CD.
Glue it onto the back, pulling it tightly. Do this in small sections for the smoothest fit.
For the pocket, lay a piece of felt over the front. Tack it down on each corner making sure to keep a pocket gap in the middle. We placed a small item inside to help hold it up.
Once its on your can turn it over and trim the excess felt off then glue it on the rest of the way.
Cut the points off of some thumbtacks using a wire cutter.
Glue them around your pouch.
Attach a hanger of felt or ribbon.
Cut a back piece and glue it on. We have free patterns on our site to help with this as they are a specific size.
