Picture of Kindle eink reader hard case cover
I bought a Kindle Paperwhite recently and was looking for a good hard case cover for it. I found few instructables where they were using elastic bands on the edges of the reader to hold it. I did not like that idea, so went with creating the one below.

Step 1: Materials Required

MDF/Acrylic or Plywood sheets of 2mm thickness (you can use any of them)
Synthetic Adhesive
Rexin / Faux leather (approx 2'x2')
Elastic (preferably round cross section)
Foam sheet (2'x1') !5mm thick or anything lying around would do

You will need access to Sewing machine
Sticker Cutting machine/ Laser cutting machine required for making the logo (optional)

Nice work. I suggest adding a magnet in the lower corner so it would auto-sleep and wake up.
Would a thin piece of MDF between the large pieces used as the covers offer a bit more protection and give it a more "book like" feel (the small piece would be a "spine" for the book).

Yes, you are right. Initially I had thought that the flexible spine would help me fold the flap to the back easily and went with this. For a book like feel, you can definitely add a small piece for better protection. As I have used a layer of foam within the flexible resin spine, it feels soft but thick. I believe it should take care of the accidental drops. If you have access to foam board, you can use it instead of MDF to reduce weight.

This cover helps me to read by keeping the reader on my tummy when I am reading on the bed. I fold the cover and place it next to me on the bed when I am lying on one of my shoulders. I would say, that is a big plus for me :)
Gorgeous work, and I love the photos :D
