Duct Tape Visor CD Holder

I got tired of CDs flying at me every time I hit the brakes in my van, so I came up with this sassy little holder, and I'll show you how to make one, too!
I saw THIS online the other day, but sadly there were no instruction included. 

After a little bit of pondering I figured out how to make it, and now I'm sharing it with you.

Card stock
six 4x6 index cards, or pieces of paper
duct tape in contrasting colors
Super glue

To make the base:
Cut your card stock into a piece measuring 10.5 inches by 6 inches.

Lay your card stock on a flat, smooth surface (I used my cutting mat) and cover it with strips of tape. Trim the excess from the edges. Flip the card over and do the same to the back. I used a contrasting color for the back.

To make the slots:
Cover your index cards with duct tape. Leave excess at the top to fold over, and leave excess at the bottom to adhere to the base. Trim the sides. Make 3 of one color and 3 of the other color.

With the excess tape at the bottom adhere the card stock to the base with the top of the card about an inch from the top of the base.

Do the same with the next piece with the top of that card around an inch or so from the top of the previous card. Keep doing this all the way down.

Secure the slots and finish the edges:
Tear a strip of duct tape the width of the base and fold it over the top. Do the same with the bottom.
Next, tear two strips the length of the base and fold over the sides.

To make the straps:
I highly recommend measuring your visor before making the straps. Not all cars are the same.
Tear 4 pieces of duct tape and equal length. Mine were around 7 inches each.
Fold the strips in half length wise.

Secure the two strips strips to each side of the back of the visor around and inch and a half from the sides. Use super glue to attach them and then cover them with the same color tape as the back of the base. This will blend them as well as give you extra staying power.

Attach your Velcro to the ends of the straps with super glue. I tried sewing the Velcro, but the needle got sticky and made a big mess. Hot glue also does NOT work on Duct tape. It will peel right off.

Attach your CD holder to your visor, or skip the straps and just store it in your glove compartment.

Voila! Isn't Duct tape amazing??
