Send Your CD’s Inside A Milk Carton Envelope!

Due to the fact that I do not like the plastic CD cases I always had a problem when I wanted to send CDs via snail mail.

When standing once in the kitchen, I recognized that we are consuming quite a large number of milk and juice which results in a great number of diverse cartons. Milk cartons are not just light, but also made out of quite strong material,perfect to a CD case!

All you need is an empty, cleaned Milk (or Juice) Carton, a cutter and a sewing machine. In case you don’t have the last one, you can solve the problem by sewing it by hand or using a stapler or some tape.

The CDs which I sent arrived in one piece and without a scratch! “Bravo for the Japanese Milk Carton!
