Uses for DVD Media Cases

Use an old DVD case as a child's colouring case. Just decorate it and make a little pocket inside with either paper or fabric to hold pencils or markers. You can also turn one into a make-up case to hold liners, lip gloss, and mascara. I know we usually have a lot of these cases laying around. They make great storage for small items. Label the case and store on a book shelf.

Use DVD cases as photo frames. We travel a lot; therefore, we keep all our DVD's in a little zip around case. The cases fit a 5x7 wonderfully.

As we continually send photos to others over the internet, it's hard to keep the originals all straight. I like to keep like subjects in them and label them, putting them in a nice basket. They stay dust free, and I don't have to look through boxes of them. They are also nice if you have to ship photos, cd's, small plaques, etc.
