Make this DIY Jewelry Box by Recycling Your Old CD’s

Homemade gifts are always the best gifts!

Everyone’s got old CD’s laying around at home collecting dust. And we can only hold onto the hope that the mix CD era will come back around for so long (looking at you Spotify). So we put ours to good use in this DIY jewelry box tutorial.

With the Holidays here, and Galentine’s Day just around the corner, it makes an easy gift for all your ladies too! Goodness knows we have enough CD’s laying around. Watch and enjoy!
