    Nice idea and pix, but not enough info. Please include detailed step-by-step directions and the specific parts you used to make this.

    Just put 12V adapter inside CFL case, from it's size I guess max 1A rated but even 500mah would be enough, pretty much common type. LED strips work on 12V directly since they have built-in resistors. +12-----|>---|>---|>---/\/\/\/\/\------0 if you dont cut, each pack of 3 is connected in parallel with others. So if you wrap 60LEDs it makes 20 packs in parallel. Assuming each draw 20mah 20*0.02A=400mah. See?

    These are great pictures, but some actual written instructions would help this become a great instructable.
