Designing your DVD covers can be a fun project. You can get creative and add a personal touch to them. Microsoft Word has many templates available online that can be downloaded and used to create DVD covers. Simply replace the default text with your own titles. Add graphics from clip art or images saved on your computer to create a customised DVD cover.

Open Microsoft Word and select "New" from the File menu.

Enter "DVD Cover" in the "Search Online For:" field and click on the "Go" button. Click on the first link in the search results, "CD/DVD Case Inserts." Click on the "Download" button.

Begin typing text in the "Add Text and Graphics" sections. Insert pictures from your computer by going to the "Insert" menu and selecting "Picture From File." Alternatively, you can add clip art by selecting "Clip Art."

Replace the text "Enter Text for CD/DVD Spine Here" on either side with your own text.

Save the file or preview the contents by going to the File menu and selecting "Print Preview." Click on the "Print" button once you are ready to insert any of the following types of paper: Avery 5693, 5631, 6693, or 8931.
