I believe you have to make them. But if this is incorrect am sure someone will say.

The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh... you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.

as far as I know, you can't buy them. So, I guess somebody has to make a tutorial for this (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

I once found a program that was for making boxed art, can't remember the name though. You will need some good printing quality cardboard and a printer that can print it. Tried to print on some 220 g/m2 paper that was pretty thick but it couldn't go through my r200.

That is a really cool site. Don't like all of the artwork but the cases themselves are a great idea.How cool would it be to make custome dvd boxes. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

paul's site is legend. There are some really nice cases made by gsalb and bunnydojo there. Only problem is the price. Mostly the boxes are more expensive then the movies. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

I've seen a template for this posted before, I'll find it and upload it. But there are two problems. You need very heavy paper/cardboard in order for it to support itself and not all printers can handle that. Secondly, to have the pieces actually fold into a sleeve they need to branch out quite a bit on the printout. So you either need a printer capable of printing extremely oversized paper (then the problem is where do you find such oversized paper that's thick enough?) or you have to print the sides/top/bottom separately and glue them together. Without the right equipment it'd be alot of work and I think the results might not be that great.

My Family Guy season two boxes were getting pretty beat up so I decided I needed to make new ones. All I did was take the box apart and scan it then print it. it took two regular pieces of photo paper
(front and back) then I glued it onto construction paper. Then I cut it and glued both sides together so it would be one piece again. THe hard part was folding it because it doesnt have any creases. Most people cant tell that I made the box unless they look really carefully. So it is possible to make boxes without buying a new printer but it can be a little bit of work and if you dont have the design already I dont know if there are any places that you can find them.

I had a template somewhere.... now where did I put it?
when I find it I will let you know..... it will have to be made to suit either an A3 printer or done in two halves.
