    That is a sweet case it has inspired me to try to make one like it!!!!!!!!!


    Good job I would make one but i do not have a deck of cards!


    I got cards

    My new nano doesnt fit on regular sized playing cards, but i made one for my freind. I also cut a round hole so you can use the keypad, and put clear cellofane over the front instead of adding another cover.

    but, if you're looking for a case, it fits perfectly (at least vertically) in an altoids tin. there are a few guides on instructables about these, you should check 'em out. I'm also probably going to write an 'ible on it.

    cool! tanx!

    I wish I could do this with my ipod touch...

    you could use a deck of jumbo sized cards....
