Making the cases wasn't all too hard. Granted the red ones are not possible to find currently, but black ones look great still on the shelf. You can take an exacto knife and cut out the holders on the inside and then I bought thin foam sheets at Target and made a stencil and cut them to fit and then put a piece of solid foam at the back to cover the holes inside so you can;t see through to the holes in the plastic at the back.

In all honesty if just putting them up on a shelf they dont need to be super fancy or expensive. They hold the games just fine for me!

Here is what the end product looked like and and I have some with different colored foam inside as the pack I bought at Target was in rainbow colors. But again these are sitting on a shelf and no one can see the inside but me so I could care less if some of them are purple or pink instead of red on the inside.

Well I don't have a good hand at cutting foam or a pro tool to stencil and clean slice the thing. Mine is rough, hacked away at looking in spots and I didn't dare make that thumb half circle up top but it fits snuggly enough. I had a spare red case so I just used a leatherman blade to slice fairly smoothly the DS clip out, and that hides well under the cover art I printed which comes off faded since I didn't use high quality paper or print settings either.

I figured when the time was right I'd just get someone else to do it as I lack the proper supplies.

What you did there looks great and I just used the red as I had it, either would be fine.


I've attached a quick pic of the usable creation in all its ugliness.

That is awesome that you had a red case. I wished I could find them but it wasn't possible. But still black is fine for me. As for the cutting, I used scissors and that's how I was able to get it to look so smooth. I bent the foam and made a slit in the middle then cut to the edge and then followed the stencil I drew on the foam in pen. Made a little slit at the top for using your finger to pull the game out too.

I have a small xacto knife and I had used the FB itself with a light pencil as a stencil then went about just slowly cutting along but the material kept snagging. I had initially pierced it using the same blade as the case cutting as it's a very very thin point to it. Either way, it's ugly and useable so it'll be fine for now and I could just leave it depending.

I've got 3 games now, another 3 in the mail shortly, but before them I've got 6 boxes+manuals arriving Saturday to games I mostly have yet to get and one is a double of a box (Mario Clash.) I won't be storing them in there, bad idea due to the age, so that's why these cases are appealing.

Hey Levine91 do you happen to have an English translated version of the Innsmouth mansion cover? All I could find is the Japanese cover on your link and nowhere else online for one!
