IPod/Cell-Phone Book Case

Picture of iPod/Cell-Phone Book Case
If you use a small notebook, you may be able to fit the device and notebook in your pocket and a small pen...you can still write in the first half of the notebook! I plan to use this as a travel game book to play tic tac toe and hangman in the first half of pages and the second half holds my iPod touch if I don't have a friend with me :D

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
-A small book or notebook at least an inch wider and longer and twice as thick as your device. It's better if you use the smallest notebook possible so you can still carry your device around in your pocket :) -A pencil -Scissors or knife, whichever suits you (believe it or not I used a penknife :D ) -Liquid glue -Your device to measure

Step 2: Measure

Measure how thick your device is plus a little more and mark the page (you don't want to accidentally close the book and lose it).

Step 3: Trace

Trace your device in the spot you want it to be on the page. Make sure you don't put the sides too close the edges of the page.

Step 4: Glue

Picture of Glue
Glue all the pages together and glue the last page to the back cover of the book. This part gets messy so prepare for stickiness!! DO NOT USE TOO MUCH GLUE AT ONCE.

Step 5: Wait.

Put something smaller but heavier onto the pages. Make sure it doesn't touch the glued edges. (Ha ha thanks Mickey :) ) In this waiting time you can clean up the mess the glue just made...

Step 6: Cut 'n' Carve

After the glue has dried, take off Mickey - bleh I mean heavy object - and start cutting the outline. Remove completed pages.

Step 7: Yay....MORE GLUE?!

If you don't want to let the pages stick out, add an extra layer if glue inside the case part. It will make the book flatter and look more normal.

Step 8: Squash It!

After the second gluing has dried (or if you've skipped it), close the book and put it on a flat surface and put thick, heavy books on top of it.

Step 9: COMPLETE!!
