This is a minimalist Kindle cover made with the box that the Kindle comes in and a few other supplies. I was looking to buy a cover/case, but found that most of them were just too bulky and I really only wanted something to protect the screen. It will work for any of the Kindle's with a 6" e-ink display, and may work with other brands of ebook readers too.

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Supplies you need:
  • Cutting board (or some kind of cutting surface)
  • Xacto knife (or some kind of sharp cutting tool)
  • Metal straight edge (for cutting)
  • Kindle box
  • Cloth about 5.5 in by 7.5 in (will be on inside surface of cover against the Kindle screen)
  • (2) elastic hair ties (you could probably improvise with something similar if these are not available)
  • Gaffers tape (or cloth tape, duct tape, electricians tape)
  • Ruler
  • Double-stick tape
Time required:
About 1 hour, maybe 1.5 hours if you are extra careful and take your time.
