Thumbs up I made a case!

I saw on here or maybe it was a blog? that you can buy a journal and take out all the pages so you only have the binding and use it for a case for your kindle. I did that and then added some elastic and for $3 i have a case

Directions:
1) I went to Big Lots and in their school supply section I bought a basic journal (think small journal/diary type) and made it a tad bigger than my kindle. Paid $3+tax

2) I came home and ripped out all the pages.

3)Then where the binding was showing, i took Black electrical tape and covered the binding where it ripped. (the inside is black but binding was white).

4)Then i used basic glue and glued a couple pcs of elastic and done!

Id post pics but we dont have a camera. I can try to scan it in the computer later, but im not sure how well it would show up.

Home-made cases are fun to do. Hope to see your setup if/when you get a hold of a camera.

I did the same, using a DTB I didn't want anymore. It worked really well, but wore out after a while.

That looks quite good. Great job!

If you get the itch to make more, you could try selling some. I'm sure you may find someone to purchase them on Ebay or Etsy.

I was joking. It looks great. I tried to do one from a book cover but I gave up; after that I logged in to Amazon and bought one. True story.

I tried with a book too and it went all wrong. A journal/notebook is so much easier to do.
