I had a yen to use my Mod Podge today.  I also had to buy a new power strip.  Then I realized that my Golden Compass DVD got lost in a recent move, but I still have the case.  Eureka!

Ok, here's what I did.

Materials and Tools:
Golden Compass DVD cover
Toilet paper roll
Packaging from new power strip
Mod Podge (i accidentally got the puzzle saver kind, which will work for this, but you might consider getting the matte kind)
Duct Tape

Cut a piece off your toilet paper roll as wide as the bottom of the power strip package.  Use duct tape to secure it inside to make a bottom for your organizer.

Remove DVD cover and insert and cut them up.  I got enough out of this one for a second project at some point.

Line up the bottom of the cover with the front of your power strip package.  Cut exactly around the cover, so the top piece that you cut off can be used as a backing.  Paint Mod Podge on the back of the piece and stick it to the front of your organizer.  Put a coat of Mod Podge on top of it.

Use a little piece of extra graphic to put on the back of the inside to cover the cardboard.  Mod Podge it on.  Use the leftover top piece from your DVD cover.  Position it so that when you look directly at the organizer, the lettering and graphics are lined up between the top and bottom of the DVD cover.  Form in along the back and then stick it on with Mod Podge.  Put a coat of podge over the whole product to seal and allow to dry.
