Introduction: DIY Agenda Book Ereader Case

I made my own ebook reader case with a 5$ agenda in a very easy way. At first sight it looks like a workbook.

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies in the picture shown are:

- Ebook reader (this is a Nook)
- Agenda book
- Cutter
- Pencil
- Wood glue
- Metal ruler

Step 2: Glue the Sides

Put wood glue along all the sides. Then spread it with a cloth or a napkin.
Try to separarte the sleeves, so glue can enter between them.
Let it dry under a pair of heavy books.

Step 3: Measure and Mark

Measure your eReader and mark the cutting lines at the first page using a pencil.

Step 4: Cut

Using the cutter, and helped by the ruler, cut the glued pages carefuly. Do this in several steps, removing the loose pages and cutting again. You must cut the corners in all directions.


Step 5: Done!

Case done!

cool, id like to do this for my iphone :D

I've done this with me iPad, in order to replicate a Moleskine case. it's one of my favourite ideas for iPad cases mate! great work!

Thanks!
Really, I thought this could be a good way to recycle old books, but I have not, so... I bought one. It would be better with an old look, but more expensive, too.

It's actually cheaper with an old book. I'm doing one right now for a Nexus 7, using an old copy of The Little Ark, just like this one... http://www.ebay.com/itm/THE-LITTLE-ARK-by-Jan-De-Hartog-Illustrated-by-Joseph-Low-1st-Ed-HC-NDJ-VGC-/160788326039

when you cut out the paper I would use the glue around the inside edge to help keep it from fraying.

Hmm, we seem to not have any wood glue... Do you have any alternatives or should I just go and buy more?

So awesome! I was planning on buying an ereader case, but than I saw this and wow! So much cheaper and cooler. Plus better designs!

How do these hold up to the test of time? I'm going to be needing a new Kindle cover soon and I have an old Moleskine laying around from when I failed to keep a travel journal while living in Ireland. I'd love to give it a go.
