ICard Dock




I was looking for a dock that was made with cards but I could not find one! So that is how this came around.


Step 1: Items Needed

This is what you will need.
+ 2 decks of cards (You just need the boxes)
+ a iPod
+ a adapter that fits that iPod
+ a USB cable to connect to your computer
+ a Zip Tie
+ Glue
+ a Knife
+ Tape
+ Sharpie
+ a Dremel tool

Step 2: Conection Time!

I looked at other docks to see how this step would go. First you will need to use a dremel to carve into the plastic to be able to easily slide the part of the cable that connects to the iPod through. then you must tie a zip tie around the two buttons on the side of the connecter if you want any chance of removing you iPod. Also to is a good idea to cover the connector in electrical tape to limit the zip ties movements. I just used some brush on Krazy Glue to join the adapter and the connector cable together.

Step 3: Sharpie Time!

Trace the outline of the adapter on to one of the card boxes(it helps to have some card in the box already to help the tracing).

Step 4: Cutting and NOT Bleeding

Start cutting the boxes. For the top box start cutting a little bit behind the sharpie line and keep test fitting.the second box you will just need to cut a square.

Step 5: Mor Connection Time!

connect the two boxes on top of each other with gule and tape.

Step 6: Last Step!

Use tape to secure the adapter onto the card box. For the bottom box, rip of a tab and thread the cord throught the side of the ripped of tap and glue shut the closing flap. And your done!!

    Lets see... 1. lol ipod headphones 2. do the card boxes not need some sort of reinforcement to hold the weight of the ipod, otherwise i would assume they would bend and eventually not hold up properly 3. not too bad

    Sorry I didn't mention this in the instructions but at first I tried to cut out all the individual cards but I got tired of that, then I tried finding anything that could fit like and used staples but the glue wouldn't hold, so then I was being Krazy(lol) and decided to not put up any support and it worked! And by the way, those aren't iPod headphones, there Skullcandy earbuds. Get Them!! They are awesome!

    for support I tried putting a bic pen cap (you know, the clear one) under the adapter an it holds the iPod up really well!

    make a solution of white glue and water. get the deck wet with it then put it back in the box. itll glue the whole thing together, then you can use a saw to put a hole in the deck.

    I wonder how it might work to throw some washers in the bottom box for some weight and then fill the card boxes with spray foam insulation to give it some mass and support inside. Nice idea!
