Where to find Empty Mini DV (DVC) Tape Cases

I found a box in my closet with lots of old DVC (Mini DV) Tapes in it and almost all of them are in the protective cases (Jewel Boxes?) - All But ten of them. I need ten empty cases (or whatever anyone has). Where could I purchase just the cases? I do not need the tapes, just the cases. I tried finding them through Google, Ebay, Amazon, etc... and I cannot find just the cases anywhere. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It would probably be cheaper to get the cases with tape from ebay and then toss out the tapes or store them in ziplock bags.

Even having someone 3d print you one, would probably cost more money then doing what i stated above, unless you have a 3d printer and know how to work it.

But something like this is 40 dollars shipped:

To get one case 3d printed it would probably cost you around 10 dollars and thats not including shipping.

Another option might be to try to capture these tapes to files and store them in a more modern format. Then toss the tapes back in the box and put them back away, maybe put a copy of the files on a hard drive in the same box for good measure.
