Step 1: Supplies
You will need:
- Ipod Nano (3G) duh
- Gum box ( If you use Big Red like i did make sure to take the Big Red Challenge)
- Glue (super glue would work better but regular glue will be fine)
- A single hole punch
- Package Tape
- Some sort of Stuffing (I used some thin sponge thing)
Step 2: Break Apart the Box
you grab the box and you take it apart, simple huh
Step 3: Cut the Stuffing
Cut stuffing to size of the bottom of the box
Step 4: Unwrap the Gum
Grab three pieces of gum and chew them while you are doing this (if you have big red lick the wrappers and stick them on your face and see what happens) glue wrappers around the stuffin gthis will give the illusion that there are pieces of gum still in the box. Once the wrappers are glue secure them on the bottom with tape them glue on the inside of the box.
Step 5: Getting the Right Fit
grab a small strip of the stuffing to keep the ipod in place. To do this line the ipod on the top of the "pieces of gum" and cut a pieces of stuffing the size of the gap under the ipod to the edge of the "pieces of gum". remember to leave a a gap for the headphone jack
Step 6: Head Phone Jack
punch the holes around the spot where on the bottom of the box where the headphones would go through.
Step 7: Almost Done...
using the glue put the box back together. use package tape to secure all of the edges when the glue dries it also gives it a plastic like shine
Step 8: Your Done YAY!!!
just fit in your ipod and you are done the screen will be slightly covered but the name of the song still shows if you want the entire screen to show just cut the edges that cover the screen off and the click wheel is still functional through the cardboard. Now you have a stylish case that smells good for a couple of days.
