Because of the work I do, it is important that I keep abreast of current books. Since my local library finally got e-books, I decided a Kindle really would be a good choice for me and so I ordered one last month. I couldn't decide exactly how to take my husband's advice and make my own cover until one day when inspiration hit. I saw an unused DVD case and thought, "That would make a great cover for my e-reader!" And it works great! And it was free. And it won't take you long to make one for yourself. Here's how:
Find a DVD case that isn't in use and tear off the plastic parts that stick up on its interior.
|I've already torn off the two tabs on the left side.|
Take a razor blade and cut off the part where the DVD rests, like this:
|I starting gluing my fabric before I realized that this part would have to be cut out with a razor blade.|
Now that you've cut your case up, you've got to cover that ugly butcher job up! Choose some fabric. You'll want to grab your Kindle and make sure your case is going to close securely once you glue your fabric inside.
|Testing it out.|
Now you're ready to glue the fabric onto the inside of your former DVD case. This will help your Kindle to fit more snugly and not get scratched.

|Isn't it pretty?|
What do you think? Do you have an e-reader? If so, did you make your own cover?
