    My new nano doesnt fit on regular sized playing cards, but i made one for my freind. I also cut a round hole so you can use the keypad, and put clear cellofane over the front instead of adding another cover.

    but, if you're looking for a case, it fits perfectly (at least vertically) in an altoids tin. there are a few guides on instructables about these, you should check 'em out. I'm also probably going to write an 'ible on it.

    nice!!! ill make a cutout of the scroll wheel so it can be used in the case.

    Any mods to make this work for the 2nd Gen of Ipod nano? (I think I just found a way: Glue to cards together to make it taller?)
