With old 5 1/4 floppy disks you can make cases for your cd & DVDs. You can use colors too!
I bought them in a garage sales (1000 floppys for u$s 2)
Only needs scicssors and adhesive tags for naming them...

    i do that a lot. i figure it makes your cds practicaly theft proof, and its retro-cool. plus i like the irony of storing stuff like dvds or a windows xp install disk inside 5 1/4 inch floppies that have been here sence the beginings of dos.

    this is a great idea! the inside of these floppies is already coated with soft felt, so it is perfect! now, maybe a way to bind them into a little booklet?
