Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
You will need:
- Scissors
- Ipod Nano (3G) duh
- Gum box ( If you use Big Red like i did make sure to take the Big Red Challenge)
- Glue (super glue would work better but regular glue will be fine)
- A single hole punch
- Package Tape
- Some sort of Stuffing (I used some thin sponge thing)

Step 2: Break apart the Box

Grab three pieces of gum and chew them while you are doing this (if you have big red lick the wrappers and stick them on your face and see what happens) glue wrappers around the stuffin gthis will give the illusion that there are pieces of gum still in the box. Once the wrappers are glue secure them on the bottom with tape them glue on the inside of the box.

Step 5: Getting the Right Fit

grab a small strip of the stuffing to keep the ipod in place. To do this line the ipod on the top of the "pieces of gum" and cut a pieces of stuffing the size of the gap under the ipod to the edge of the "pieces of gum". remember to leave a a gap for the headphone jack

Step 6: Head phone jack

Step 7: Almost done...

using the glue put the box back together. use package tape to secure all of the edges when the glue dries it also gives it a plastic like shine

Owl City is one guy's project. he wrote all of his music from his parent's basement during insomnia. What i'm getting at is that Owl City is not a band, but one guy from Owatonna, Minnesota.
