How to Make a Duct Tape Case for a Mp3 Player




Introduction: How to Make a Duct Tape Case for a Mp3 Player

with a screen protector

Step 1: Materials

you will need;

mp3 player
packaging tape
duct tape


hobby knife

Step 2: Screen Protector

wrap one layer of packaging tape around the mp3 player, sticky side out.

put some packaging tape on the packaging tape and tear it off. this will remove some of the gle. repeat until a section the size of the screen has no glue.

do the same for the controls

(sorry about the pics, my camera turned into a giant robot that anhiliated the galaxy. actually, no, I just dropped it )

Step 3: Now for the Duct Tape

put a strip of duct tape on the table and use the hobby knife to cut holes for the power and reset buttons, the headphone jack, and the usb slot.

put it on the player sticky side out and use various strips of duct tape to cover the sticky ones

Step 4: It's a Wrap

(sorry for the pun)

wrap the rest in duct tape (remember to put it inside out first, then inside in)

if you want the case to be removeable. carefully cut along the bottom so only one side is connected, and put a strip of duct tape over the cut

    I tried making one of these before i read this... i used superglue on the screen protector to hold it on and didn't wait for it to dry. My sansa fuze got super glued in the case (luckily, i got it out, unluckily, it melted a portion of it) :(

    Notice how the tape in the background is the only things thats clear...... :D lol googd job

    Hah. I'll write one up when I decide to stop being lazy :P I just got a nice digital camera and my linux rig back up, so I just might.

    creative zen sleek PHOTO. I can't even remember when I bought it, but it's still with me. <3

    Correction a crappy mp3 player that broke down on me in like 3 months.

    your entitled to your opinion, but mine is still working perfectly, and has been for years, so my assertion that its great is still valid.
