Hm, what are you going to use it for?

One quick answer from the top of my head would be to ...

1) place it in a large enough zip lock bag.
2) make a surround out of a foam block that would fit it neatly providing a
1 inch surround leaving an opening for the screen.

I haven't tried either answer but I'm pretty sure they should work.
If you try them tell me how they work out and take a photo OR I'll find some
time to try it and take a few pictures myself.

God bless,
