CD/DVD storage inserts for your A5 Filofax

One of my commenters recently asked if I could produce an insert to store CDs in an A5 Filofax. This was not a challenge I felt able to walk away from.

There may be many reasons you want to keep a CD or DVD in your Filofax:
  • a backup copy of your important files
  • scans of your passports and travel documents
  • photos to be printed when you next visit the print shop

Whatever your reasons, here is a solution. I'd strongly recommend you use quite thick A4 paper for this project, say 90-100gsm. The dimensions of the pocket are quite tight so the CD will not move around too much and tear the paper, but strong paper would make doubly sure.

Here is the template:

You can download it as an editable Microsoft Publisher file or as a PDF file. If using the PDF be sure to set it to print at full size as explained here.

There's a little cutting, folding and glueing involved. Here's what the final result looks like:


Although it's not clear from the picture, there is a little fold-over tab that keeps the CD safely in its pocket when it is fully inserted.
