This is large round box template that I made for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog's #44 Be inspired Wednesday. It makes a box with semi circles that measure 5 1/2 inches in diameter, but please feel free to resize it if you like. The PDF size fits a CD pocket if you like.

For those who prefer not to read blogs, Here's how I used it:

1) Print template & cut it out
2) Lay it diagonally on a piece of 12x12 cardstock or use watercolour paper.
3) Trace the template once, then flip it around & trace the circle again.
4) Cut it & build.

to add the CD pockets, I chose sewing (adhesive was not so hot with the clearance on the circles) and to strengthen the sewing holes that I pierced, I reinforced by painting white acrylic paint on. (If you're using patterned or coloured paper-you could paint on acrylic gel medium for reinforcing, since it's clear.) The template hides the stitching on the inside of the pocket when you assemble the box.
