How to make a book into an iPod case.
For this tutorial, you will need: An iPod A book that is OK to destroy A ruler An X-Acto Knife A pair of headphones A piece of cardboard ...
First, measure your iPod and your book. As you can see, my iPod is about 1cm thick, and my book is about 3cm thick. Figure out the distances ...
Next, place your iPod inside the book and trace it, leaving a small margin.
Now, put the piece of cardboard in where you want to stop cutting.
Start cutting with the X-Acto knife, following the drawn lines.
After you have reached the cardboard, test out your hole by placing your iPod inside.
Now, plug in your headphones and trace them.
Next, cut the hole for the wire. This only needs to be a couple pages thick.
Now, continue cutting just the hole for the headphone plug. This does not need to go all the way down.
Finally, place your iPod and headphones in the holes.
