Step 1: Materials

The materials for this step are quite simple.

-- handheld device of your choice(I'm using my mp3)
--duct tape color of your choice(I'm using a blueish color)

Step 2: Sticky Side Out

the best way to make a case and not have it stick to your device is to use 2 layers. One with the sticky side out. the other putting sticky against sticky so that the non sticky side is out aswell as in.

I wraped my mp3 length wise so that it will lay side ways in the case. Leave some slack so you can get your device in and out of the case.

Then I put a piece of duct tape(sticky side out) on one side and left the other side open.

Step 3: Sticky to Sticky

Now you basically have to so the same thing you did in step 2 bet puting the sticky sides together so that you have non stick touching your device and nonstick touching you.

Step 4: Belt Loop

This step is optional.

if you are going to do this step read the picture notes they are very important.

Step 5: DONE

Congratz! You now have your very own duct tape case with optional hip loop. Go show it off to your friends and make them bathe in its glory.

    This is nice and clean.  I like the idea of using different colors to make the cases.
