I found a great Photoshop template to make a family calendar 2017 CD jewel case calendar template.  This makes a fun, frugal homemade Christmas/holiday gift idea using a jewel case.  For my 2013 calendar template, I featured all the members of the family in one calendar.  My husband was great and printed out all the pictures, and the kids and I cut them out and inserted them into CD jewel cases.  You can find CD or DVD jewel cases (if you don’t already have a hundred of them lying around) at any office supply store, right near the blank CD’s.

I was lucky enough that I had 12 members of the family, to feature for the 12 months of the year, but I made a rule that the youngest get displayed first and the oldest get bumped.  We had enough people, but the youngest are the most important for photographs, right?

This calendar is really cool because it fits inside of a CD jewel cases, which is a great way to recycle all those awful cases.  The best part is that you can flip the CD case around and it can display propped up.  I also added a bunch of holiday music.  Amazon loves to give away all sorts of free holiday music this time of year, so head over there to grab some.  If you are diligent, you can score all the songs on your CD for free.

Honestly, I don’t think that this CD calendar will be good enough as just an “as-is” present, but if you top it off with a few extra homemade gifts, you are all set to go!
