Add photos: Select and print 2 photos per sleeve that you'd like to show off on the front. Keep in mind that they will be 1-1/2 inch squares. Cut 1-1/2 inch squares out of your photos and attach them to the front.

Label the sleeve on both the back and the tab, and then slip the CD/DVD inside. If you don't want to use the tab, simply cut it off.

step5

 

Variation: Add the photos and labels digitally. You can use a graphics editing program with layers like Photoshop Elements to add the photos and text digitally. Position your photo layers underneath the template layer so that they show through the transparent windows. Use the Text tool to add the list of contents and label to the top layer.
