Yes it's time for another challenge - DVD Hacks! We all have them and I tend to donate the movies we are done with. However - what do you do with them if something happens to the DVD - it's scratched, lost, etc? Here are a few DVD case hacks that I came up with...

I hot glued the cases together. You could use a more permanent glue like E6000 or super glue if you like.

Use dry erase markers to write on the sleeve, and it wipes right off.


I glued 4 magnets onto the 4 corners on back and placed it on my refrigerator. Now I have a section for my grocery list, a section for each of my kid's chores, a reminder section, etc.

I took an old sign I had, set it on a vinyl table cloth, traced it, and cut it out.

To make my planter I would need to use my DVD cases open and horizontal with the opening on the top.


I took my DVD cases, placed them on the vinyl table cloth and created and cut out the shape I wanted. I wanted my case to be open so I stared with the "v" moved to the flat horizontal side, back to the other "v" and then made sure to have some extra to wrap around the back on both sides.

Here is the cut shape.


I slid the table cloth through the plastic sleeve and left the sides hanging out.
