Stealthy Zune Case

Introduction: Stealthy Zune Case

This is a way to rock out to your zune with a stealthy and cheap case.

Step 1: Materials!!!

This is what you need for this project.


-orbit gum

-Your Zune ( only 4-16 gig sizes )

Step 2: Gutting the Gum Case

First... unwrap the case

second...take all your gum out of the case

third.....remove all the foil - Careful not to rip the cardboard!!!

Now you should have an empty cardboard box essentially.

Step 3: Cuttin' Time

ok this is the most essential part. Take your scissors and cut the top right little wall on the side. I can't really describe it to you that well. look at where i am cutting in the pictures. Only cut to the main section. don't go any further. (this hole is for your headphone jack.)

Step 4: Insert Your Zune

Put your Zune in facing you, and so your headphone jack is lined up with the whole. (look at the picture)

Step 5: Finished!!! =D

Now, close up your case, put on some music, and of course, rock out with your stylish gum zune case. P.S.- if your friend asks for some of your delishious orbit gum, don't let him take a peice.

    I like the idea. Besides my leather zune case I also made a case from cardboard for my older zen player which was kind of complicated as I made the whole case from one piece of cardboard. It came out pretty much like the orbit package, just with some additional holes for the screen and buttons and a flap to close the whole thing so the screen isn't exposed when not in use. But I still use my 1.Gen Zune also. Zune still rocks :-)

    I modified mine a bit for a better fit, because I wanted my Zune to fill the whole pack and not be able to slide around, I cut a piece of foam that was 95mmx6mmx8mm and glued it inside the pack of gum, so now my Zune fills the whole case.
