I've been googling this for a while now, with no luck.  Does anyone here know where I can find a fairly idiot-proof tutorial on making your own slipcase?

A slipcase is basically an open box.  It has a spine, two sides and a top and bottom.  Everything is assembled and usually covered in cloth, paper, or leather and this case slips over a book to protect it.

Yeah, I found those.  I need pics for the first one, as I'm a visual learner when it comes to construction and assembly, and I swear I couldn't make heads or tails out of the ten-minute tut...

Thanks for tryin'...

Thank you for your help, you two!  After looking at all of those, I had a pretty good idea on how to proceed, and I've made my first prototype.  Now, I need to work on some improvements, and a few more versions later, and I'll have a finished item.
