Introduction: Kindle Cover W/ Magnetic Closure
When I noticed that my best friend kept her Kindle in a little cloth bag, I thought it would be cool to make her a hard case. Personally, I don't understand the bag/padded sleeve concept because I have a tendency to drop things or keep it in my purse with everything else. The only thing that bag is protecting it from is dust.
The case is based on some box making and bookbinding concepts. Once I had all the pieces cut out, the actual assembly was around 10 minutes. Very simple and very fast!
I gave the cover to my friend as a birthday present and she loves it! She especially likes it because it's more durable than most commercially made similar items like journals or handmade books.
The total cost was around $5 for materials. The Nori paste is a specialty item that I only used a very small percentage of, so that was a minimal addition.
